Use print coloring pages and something of such crayon techniques for the following classroom art lesson.
Trace in the photocopied picture outline with crayon.
Thick lines work best.
Brush over the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
The waxed lines will resist the paint as well as the picture will glow through.
Color a lot of the picture with crayon. Leave some areas white.
Brush on the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
Draw over the lines with crayon.
Paint the picture with a variety of colors.
The crayon lines can make the picture easier to paint.
They stop edges bleeding into the other.
This is not a resist but it’s an incredible extension in the previous activities.
Paint the image with watercolors.
When the paint is dry, use crayons to include detail and depth of color.
Rip off a little sheet of paper that is about the size of a matchbox.
Use a crayon to scribble thickly to the paper.
Turn the paper over and using your thumb rub the crayon on to the photo.
This creates a very soft smooth effect.
Color a location of the image having a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can produce interesting patterns. Experiment having a part of blank paper first.
Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to make a swirling effect.
Sprinkle the crayon on to the photo and after that rub them with your thumb.
This is effective if you use different colors together.
It makes effective animal fur, storm clouds or grass.
Go over the outline of the photo with black crayon.
Color the remainder of the picture thickly with crayon.
If possible use a smaller piece of cotton wool or cloth to polish the photo.
Heat in the friction of rubbing melts the crayon and results in a smooth shiny effect.
Apply a tiny amount of vegetable oil to your cotton wool ball.
Gently rub the oil within the back of the picture.
The oil is likely to make the picture almost transparent.
Students could be due to the oil soaked balls inside a paint tray.
Encourage these to check out and on the picture to spread the oil.
Hang the picture in the classroom window to produce a stained glass effect.
