Lightbulb Try this with your WWC's!

Here's something fun! I use the Watercolor Wonder Crayons by taking color off the flat end with an Aqua painter. I was showing this to a group, and one person took the crayon & used the damp flat end as a little stamp to stamp circles with! Really a cool look--either tone on tone or with different colors. The best part--the girl is only 12 years old, & everyone loved her idea!

Great idea! Thanks for sharing! This is the reason I actually hand my new stuff over to my daughter to play with (she knows all the rules and has been stamping w/ me for about 10 years)...children are so uninhibited with their creativity, and they really come up w/ some "outside the box" ideas.

That is toooo fun!!! I must give it a try!

Another fun tip that may have been stated 500 times already in another area of the forums is to color little circles of crayons on acetate before class to give to those in your classes - then they actually each have their own little palette and don't need to wait for the crayons to be passed around. I can hardly wait to see any other tips this thread brings up! Thanks for posting your awesome idea!

I'm so glad to hear that you use your crayons that way because I do too, except, I dip the point end in water and dab my WC brush on the crayon, then paint! I also make sure my image is wet. It helps evreything blend better.
TFS!
