Re: baby oil and pastels


Date: Tue Apr 22 2003 - 05:40:38 PDT

I saw the lesson somewhere but couldn't figure it out and just as usual,
jumped in anyway.
My 3rd graders (2/3ds) did our state flower in oil pastel. Then we went
over them with a wash of vegtable oil. (Lay a paper towel over it gently to
sop up the excess or you'll have an interesting effect the next day!)
Anyway the other 1/3 started later and I decided to use a real bouquet (our
state flower is the bluebonnet so they aren't much of a bouquet). I also
incorporated some art I have seen where the patterened table cloth changes
color and is distorted behind the glass vase.
We really had fun with checkered patterns!
ANyway, I learned too late but at least in time for these that while they are
wet-go back into them with the sticks and the color is remarkable. It looks
like a painting.
I have about nine going to art competition tomorrow.
Any other questions, feel free to ask.
