Crumple paper. Open it up. Crumple it again. Open. Watercolor one side in a
light color. Turn over and watercolor in another color being sure that both
colors are different than the ink color. Paper will look like a batik. Of
course, it must dry completely before printing.
Print on single color wallpaper... ones with a low texture so that all of the
print plate will touch the paper.
Print over a background previously watercolored so that the colors mingle and
run. Dry first.
Do a repeat design in printing..each time with another color ink
Print one in black on white paper..then one on black paper with white ink. Let
dry. then Cut them up into identical corresponding shapes. To do this have
them cut BOTH papers together. Then mix and match a collage of dark
alternating with light paper. Great for teaching repetition and alternation.
I could go on but this should keep them busy for a while.
