Use print coloring pages and one of the crayon processes for the next classroom art lesson.
Trace in the photocopied picture outline with crayon.
Thick lines work most effectively.
Brush on the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
The waxed lines will resist the paint and the picture will glow through.
Color almost all of the picture with crayon. Leave some areas white.
Brush over the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
Draw over the lines with crayon.
Paint the image with any number of colors.
The crayon lines could make the picture easier to paint.
They will minimize edges bleeding into one another.
This is not a resist but it’s an excellent extension with the previous activities.
Paint the picture with watercolors.
When the paint is dry, use crayons to incorporate detail and depth of color.
Rip off a small sheet of paper which is concerning the size of a matchbox.
Use a crayon to scribble thickly onto the paper.
Turn the paper over and taking advantage of your thumb rub the crayon on to the photo.
This generates a very soft smooth effect.
Color a location of the photo which has a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can produce interesting patterns. Experiment with a little bit of blank paper first.
Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to make a swirling effect.
Sprinkle the crayon on to the image after which rub them your thumb.
This is useful 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 image.
Heat from your friction of rubbing melts the crayon and creates a smooth shiny effect.
Apply a small amount of vegetable oil to some cotton wool ball.
Gently rub the oil within the back of the photo.
The oil is likely to make the photo almost transparent.
Students might be because of the oil soaked balls in a very paint tray.
Encourage them to review and on the picture to spread the oil.
Hang the photo in the classroom window to create a stained glass effect.
