Remember when you were five years old and nothing was better than a brand new coloring book and new box of crayons? If only happiness could be that simple again... but wait, maybe it can! Let's give it a try! This time, instead of a coloring book, a reference image of anything you'd like to color over and some water soluble crayons. Use the crayons to color over the image and create a new work of art. It IS that simple! You can make them as odd, interesting, and/or beautiful as you would like. These crayons bring a whole new level of happiness to coloring!
I glued my reference image to a sheet of Strathmore paper, then started coloring in the image. I used a little spray of water whenever I wanted to blend in my colors. I then added a bit of gesso at the end to mute and blend the colors.
