Wednesday Craft

Today we used the white crayon watercolour resist technique to create our art. 
 We started by drawing pictures with the white crayon on the white paper. Once the drawing was done, I showed how layers of watercolor could be added to reveal the white crayon lines underneath. This technique works because oil and water don’t mix – hence the beautiful resist paintings that emerge.
For best results we learnt it was important to press down pretty hard on the crayon and using more water creates a softer more effective result.

Caught Reading


These three Room 2 lovelies spent their Lunchtime reading. Alex was enjoying 'Marge in charge', Kaitlyn 'Isadora Moon' and judging by the giggles coming from behind her joke book Ruby B had chosen just the right book.
