RESIST TECHNIQUES

Variation 1:

Trace on the photocopied picture outline with crayon.
Thick lines work best.
Brush in the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
The waxed lines will resist the paint and also the picture will glow through.

Variation 2:

Color the majority of the picture with crayon. Leave some areas white.
Brush in the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.

Variation 3:

Draw over the lines with crayon.
Paint the image with many colors.
The crayon lines could make the picture much easier to paint.

They will eradicate edges bleeding into each other.

Variation 4:

This is not a resist yet it’s a fantastic extension from the previous activities.
Paint the image with watercolors.
When the paint is dry, use crayons to include detail and depth of color.

RUBBING TECHNIQUES

Variation 1:

Rip off a little sheet of paper which is about the size a matchbox.
Use a crayon to scribble thickly onto the paper.
Turn the paper over and utilizing your thumb rub the crayon on to the picture.
This produces a very soft smooth effect.

Variation 2:

Color a location of the photo with a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can cause interesting patterns. Experiment having a part of blank paper first.

Variation 3:

Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to create a swirling effect.
Sprinkle the crayon on to the image then rub all of them with your thumb.

This is successful if you utilize different colors together.
It makes effective animal fur, storm clouds or grass.

TRANSPARENT TECHNIQUE

Go over the outline of the picture with black crayon.
Color the remainder of the picture thickly with crayon.
If possible use a small little bit of cotton wool or cloth to polish the image.
Heat in the friction of rubbing melts the crayon and results in a smooth shiny effect.
Apply a smaller amount of vegetable oil with a cotton wool ball.
Gently rub the oil within the back of the image.
The oil will make the image almost transparent.
Students can be given the oil soaked balls inside a paint tray.
Encourage these phones look at and in the picture to spread the oil.
Hang the image inside a classroom window to generate a stained glass effect.
