Wax Resist Watercolour Giraffe

Easy and fun STEAM activity


Wax resist watercolour is a super cool activity to do with children. It is a magical experience because when you draw with white crayon it is only revealed once you paint over it!


What is the science behind this activity? Well, according to www.scienceworld.ca, "Water clings to paper and makes the paper wet. It does not cling to wax or oil." This is why your white on white drawing becomes visible once you paint over it!


Materials

  • Watercolour paper

  • White crayon

  • Watercolour paint

  • Paint brushes

  • Water
