School Painting Dyes -
Wax Crayon and Chalk Resist Lesson
You will need
· Wax Crayons
· A Water-based water soluble dye
Use Chalk to draw a thick outline of your picture.
Use wax crayons to colour in your picture between the chalk outlines. Colouring in your picture. Makeup one dark School Dye colour (preferably black). Allow this dark to wash over the entire picture. This will wash away the chalk outlines.
You must make sure that you are using Wax Crayons to make this work. There are a lot of plastic crayons on the market; these will not work.
The Wax Crayons are ideal for quick colourful artworks with FAS School Painting Dyes.
If you can use a thicker water-absorbent cartridge paper as this type of painting will use a lot of water, you need a paper that can cope with this.
Draw a picture with the wax crayons making the lines reasonably thick. In a simple basic design.
Example: 'A is for Apple' and drawing a simple outline of an apple.
Using the wax crayons, colour in any spaces left.
Paint and fill your picture with the School Painting Dye covering the entire picture with bright and vibrant colour.
The School Painting Dye is resisted by the wax crayon areas that you coloured in earlier.
This method also suits designs based on stained glass windows.
Simple yet very colourful and can be completed in minutes.
