Seamingly Blank Canvas: Wax Resist

Blank Canvas?

When O hit this blank piece of paper, she wasn't aware that it was actually not a blank piece at all.
Once the watercolour hit the page, a surprise was revealed!

Wax resist paintings are simple and sweet. Done before many times over, but never the same twice!


 Name Revealed

When O realized her name was appearing on the page, she attempted writing over it, with no luck!

Then she took a go at her own wax resist creation.

Surprise Message. Children who are able to read will enjoy a surprise message or riddle. You can expand this further by providing clues to a scavenger hunt.

Fake Food. We often watch video's from 'The Kids Should See This". Last week we chanced upon the making of wax food. Having lived in Asia for several years and seen our share of 'fake food' displayed in restaurant lobbies, this was especially interesting. The technique and art is stunning! http://thekidshouldseethis.com/post/sampuru-how-is-japanese-fake-food-made
