Green on Green Wax Resist

Under the Sea crayon resist drawings and paintings.


Students will experiment with wax resist as they create pictures using shades of green.

What You Need:

  • Green Construction Paper
  • Green crayons or oil pastels
  • White tempera paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Water and water containers
  • A covered work area
  • Paint shirts or smocks for the little ones

What You Do:

Draw a design or picture on the green construction paper using green crayon. This can get a bit tricky because its sometimes hard to see what it is you are drawing. Remember, this is supposed to be fun. If you can’t draw a detailed image, just do some fun designs.

Press hard with the crayon so its nice and thick.

When the picture is drawn, brush some white tempera paint (not too thick) over the paper.

Like magic, lines will appear from out of nowhere!

Sign and display your work.
