Oh, I know this is a basic art technique, but how can I call this a kids’ art and design blog without including a wax resist project for little kids? It’s such a magical moment when they first brush the watercolor across the page that they have drawn on with crayons.
Beckett did two paintings: one beautiful, soft pastel version that expressed his calm, serene mood…..
And then one that highlighted his dark, rebellious side.
And then this happened.
Then it just all went downhill, and art-making was over for the day.
Make sure you use nice, fat brushes to cover a lot of space at a time on the paper, and use heavy watercolor paper for this project. Thin paper will just buckle into a mess.
