Crayon Resist Space Art

You will need:

  • Crayons
  • White card
  • Paintbrush
  • Black water colours or watered down paint
  • Paper towels


Start by colouring a space scene on the card using crayons e.g. stars, planets, shooting stars, rockets, aliens, etc. Brush over the whole paper with black water colour / paint. The waxy crayon won’t absorb the paint and it beads up a little.  Pat with a paper towel to clean off paint that beads up on the crayon. Let dry, and display your beautiful space picture!
