Draw over the lines with crayon. Paint the picture with any number of colors. The crayon lines is likely to make the image easier to paint. They stop edges bleeding into each other.
This is not a resist but it is a great extension from the previous activities. Paint the photo with watercolors. When the paint is dry, use crayons to incorporate detail and depth of color.
Rip off a little piece 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 image. This produces a very soft smooth effect.
Color a place of the picture having a textured object placed underneath. Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can produce interesting patterns. Experiment using 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 then rub them your thumb.
This is successful if you are using different colors together. It makes effective animal fur, storm clouds or grass.
Go within the outline of the photo with black crayon. Color the remainder of the image thickly with crayon. If possible use a small bit of cotton wool or cloth to polish the image. Heat through the 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 in the back of the picture. The oil can make the photo almost transparent. Students could be in the oil soaked balls in a paint tray. Encourage the crooks to check out and over the picture to spread the oil. Hang the photo in a very classroom window to produce a stained glass effect.See other articles below:
