Magic Painting Wax Resist

Kids love magic painting.  You can write a secret message or draw a cartoon that the children will find as they play with the colourful paint.  Plenty of fun.... 

You will need:

Paper – white adsorbent
A long thin candle or white wax crayons
School Tempera Poster Paint - waterbased
Wide Brushes – Old interior decorators are idea.
Newspaper or Cover sheet.

Wax Resist Painting

 Start by

1.   Lay down your cover sheet or newspaper.  Put aprons on the children.

2.   Draw on your secret design on the white paper using either end of the candle or use the white crayon.

3.   Paint over the wax design using a brush with one or more colours.  The wax from the candle or the crayon resists the paint and as if by magic shows through the colourful secret message.

Wax Crayon resist
It can be this simple

Any colour wax crayon will work but try to use them in a heavy way to lay down plenty of wax.

Paint: High quality thick kid’s poster paint may be too thick to do this project. If your paint is too thick try adding some water. As paint that is thinner like water is better. 
You can also do this with a colourful water based dye.  Use gloves.
