Kick-off Project: Wax Crayon Batik

Students in the Pinterest Arts & Crafts Elective finished their first project today - wax crayon batik.

The students drew pictures using wax crayons. They then crumpled their pictures up (it was stressful to crumple up their hard work!). After crumpling their picture a few times, they flattened them out revealing cracks where there wasn't any crayon. A quick wash of watered down acrylic paint only adhered to the cracks, resisting the wax areas, thereby giving the look of batik fabric.

You can find all of the projects the students will be enjoying in this KCS elective here:
