I do an assignment called a crayon resist. This is a stylized design of any
subject you want to use. The kids use lines to outline the subjects, I use
birds, animals with sections ,or things that will stylize easily. The
stained glass ideas can used here very easily. The lines are thickend with
a pencil or felt pen to be about 1/8-1/4".

The designs are transfered from their newsprint copy to the white drawing
paper with graphite, tracing on both sides of the thickend line. This gives
them a space between shapes. the shapes are then colored with crayons to
achieve a thick coating, layers of white will hold a tone of the color and
gradations of one color to another are encouraged.

Then a quanity of black tempera is thinned slightly with water and with
moderately wide brushes the paint is brushed quickly into the spaces between
the crayon making it a black line and resiting the wax. the result looks
like stained glass designs.
