The Green Pepper Press Street Team Crusade No.21 - Irresistible, is all about crayons so you know I have to participate in this one. You make rubbings with crayons and then paint over it for a wax resist effect. Of course I used a pink crayon! But not you everyday pink crayon. This one has glitter in it. I found it in my box of crayons and I think it belonged to one of my Grandson's when they lived with us. I chose to rub puzzle pieces.
Before using the pink crayon I tried rubbing with a copper crayon, so you can see parts of it in the background.
Here you can see the glitter more clearly.
This is the actual color of the piece. All of these are the same piece of art but photographed in different locations with different light sources. I used purple acrylic paint with varied dilutions with water.
If you hold it to the light and turn it, the copper pieces come through. A fun project. Thanks Michelle!
