This results in a very soft smooth effect.
Color a location of the image which has a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can cause interesting patterns. Experiment with a little bit of blank paper first.
Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to make a swirling effect.

The oil can make the image almost transparent.
Students could be in the oil soaked balls in the paint tray.
Encourage these to check out and in the picture to spread the oil.
