Drawing on Wet Glue with Chalk Pastels

Drawing on wet glue with chalk pastels


By drawing into wet paste with chalk pastels, students can create unique works of art.

What You Need:

  • Paper 12″ x 18″
  • Pastels
  • Art Paste (cellulose) 2oz makes 2 gallons (paper mache paste)

What You Do:

  1. Use a still life as subject matter. Mine was flowers and a vine (which allows the kids to draw all across the paper).
  2. With a large (6″) brush, wipe mixed paste on the paper in front of each student.
  3. Cover the whole sheet.
  4. While the paper is wet, (working time of about 20 min.) have children draw into the wet paste with the pastels.
  5. Put aside to dry for 2hrs.

But Wait, There’s More
