Wax Crayon Resist Art

Wax crayon resist art is a super fun craft because your design will appear like magic!

You’ll need: white wax crayon, paper, liquid watercolors, a paint brush and salt


  1. Start by drawing with the white wax crayon on your piece of paper. Make sure to press hard with your crayon. If it’s tough to see your design, try drawing under a bright light.
  2. Paint over your entire drawing with watercolor paint.
  3. While adding salt as your next step is optional, it adds a super cool element to this project. Sprinkle salt over the paint while it is still wet.
  4. Watch the effects as the watercolors and salt combine!

We hope you love your artwork after completing this activity!
