Wax & Ink

Today for our art we drew wax pictures.
Lots of planets.
Using a wash of water and ink the sky was painted.
A very simple activity but enjoyed by all.
This was actually our second attempt. For the practice run we used A3 printer paper and used water colour for the wash, my boys were disappointed with the rippling affect of the thin paper. This time we used wall lining paper which is excellent for absorbing washes, the ink was to hand and therefore used.
