Halloween Wax Resist Paintings


It is always fun to watch the paint pull away from your wax drawings when doing wax resist paintings, and the effect with a wash of black paint for Halloween is suitably gruesome and spooky!

You will need:

Wax crayons or oil pastels
Black watercolour paint


Draw a picture on your paper with the crayons or pastels.

Water down the watercolour paint so it is very runny and paint over the top.

Your picture will come through the paint.
