    I always have the kids mix LIGHT colors - then if all the ink doesn't wash
    off easily at least you see nice contrast where the ink has settled into the
    brushstrokes. The lighter paintings always look better than the ones that
    are heavy with blues, etc.

    >1. Paint heavy.
    >2. Cover with black tempera.
    >3. Wash off to expose tempera below.
