Wax Resist Crackle Drawing Lesson 4

7. Get your dark poster paint ready. I used purple. Thin it out with a little with water if it's too thick.

8. Paint the dark paint over your entire drawing using your sponge. I cut a off a piece of the sponge so it wouldn't be as messy. Try to get the paint over the entire crayon drawing. Don't let the paint dry.

9. Now take a paper towel and wipe away the excess paint. You will probably need to dampen a second paper towel and wipe off more paint. Your drawing will start to reappear with this very pretty crackle finish!

10. When I hold my drawing up to a bright window it looks like a stained glass window. Admire what an pretty piece of art work you have created!!
