Wax Resist Painting

Wax resist painting is always a fun techinique to try with the kids and you can get some great results. It helps to have a topic to start with and in our case we were looking at Paul Klee's "The Goldfish" and decided to have a go at our own version.

Wax Resist Painting

You will need:

  • Paper
  • Wax crayons or oil pastels
  • Blue watercolour paint

Instructions:

  • 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.
