Crayon Resist is nothing new, but I absolutely love it, especially when vibrant colors are used.
The preschoolers first drew on their papers. I prefer scrapbooking cardstock.
And then they place their paper on a tray and brush watercolors over it. When using watercolor trays, I prefer Prang. They don’t crack easily when drying out like their competitors. They seem to last a lot longer. I was lucky to pick them up for 99 cents during back-to-school.
I also like to use clear containers for the water (baby food jars work well) so they can see the color change as they rinse their brushes.
I’d love to frame these for the walls in my house!
