Watercolor Crayons and Oil Pastels, Oh My!

I wandered over to Blick Art Materials today in search of some painting fun.
I found a sweet stock of art supplies hiding in there, and this is what we did...


Watercolor paper
White oil pastel
Spring Green  Caran d'Ache watercolor crayon
White oil pastel
Blue shimmer spray - acrylic
Isopropyl alcohol

Draw your heart out with the white oil pastel. Or in my case draw a leaf. Haha.

Then add in some detail lines with your watercolor crayon...

Finally, spray on some liquid watercolor or shimmer spray.

Oh, wait.... don't forget to get some extra fun by sprinkling the surface with rubbing alcohol.

It's super fun to watch the process of the water separating from the drops of alcohol.

Okay, go try it!
