Here's how to create a fireworks crayon resist picture.
Using a variety of colours of crayon to draw fireworks on a white piece of paper. Pressing firmly will get the best effect.
Start by drawing with crayon
Water down some black paint to make a wash.
Liberally paint over the crayon picture.
The crayon will resist the paint and reveal the firework picture.
Why not try an underwater scene with a bright orange octopus or little creatures like ladybirds or spiders.
