Here is a cool art project we did recently! Check it out!
The supplies you will need for this project are: watercolor paper, water, paintbrush, white crayon, and food coloring.
Step 1) Draw on the paper with the white crayon. This can be a bit tricky, so make sure you have good lighting to see your drawing.
Step 2) Use the paintbrush to saturate the paper with water. Make sure it’s really wet! Don’t worry if the paper curls a little, it will flatten back when dry.
Step 3) Now comes the fun part! Take the food coloring and begin to drip it onto the paper. The color will stain the wet paper, but will not stain the part covered with a the white crayon. Add as many colors as you like.
Step 4) You can drip more water onto the paper, or pick the paper up to encourage the pigment to get everywhere. you’ll begin to see the images you drew in white.
Step 5) Let the piece dry and admire. Here are some finished pieces our clients did!
You can make these pieces to match almost any theme! It’s a fun, messy, colorful way to make some interesting art!
