Trace within the photocopied picture outline with crayon. Thick lines perform best. Brush on the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color. The waxed lines will resist the paint and also the picture will glow through.
Color almost all of the picture with crayon. Leave some areas white. Brush within the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
Draw in the lines with crayon. Paint the photo with many colors. The crayon lines will make the photo easier to paint. They will minimize edges bleeding into the other person.
This is not a resist but it is a great extension in the previous activities. Paint the picture with watercolors. When the paint is dry, use crayons to provide detail and depth of color.
Rip off a smaller small note which is in regards to the size of a matchbox. Use a crayon to scribble thickly on the paper. Turn the paper over and using your thumb rub the crayon on to the picture. This creates a very soft smooth effect.
Color a region of the photo using a textured object placed underneath. Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can create interesting patterns. Experiment using a little bit of blank paper first.
Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to produce a swirling effect. Sprinkle the crayon on to the photo 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 photo thickly with crayon. If possible use a smaller part of cotton wool or cloth to polish the picture. Heat from the friction of rubbing melts the crayon and results in a smooth shiny effect. Apply a small amount of vegetable oil to a cotton wool ball. Gently rub the oil on the back of the image. The oil is likely to make the picture almost transparent. Students could be in the oil soaked balls in the paint tray. Encourage the crooks to check out and on the picture to spread the oil. Hang the image inside a classroom window to produce a stained glass effect.See other articles below:
