Liquid Watercolor™ Resist Art
An Activity for Preschoolers:
Make stunning resist creations using simple materials.
Before You Begin:
This activity is so simple, only a few supplies are needed. Make sure you have plenty of color choices for crayons and watercolors. Pre-fill paint cups and lay out brushes and paper.
Explore color mixing.
Explore cause and effect.
Develop fine motor skills.
Practice creating negative space.
This activity works well for abstract art too. Using only a white crayon really makes the paint colors pop!
Let's Get Started
Use crayons to draw a picture, shape or patterns on plain paper
With paint brush, paint watercolor directly over the crayon art
Watercolors will blend where they touch, but will resist the crayon art creating a beautiful effect!
