Wax Resist and Salt Watercolors

Usdan Director of Education, Jillian Greenberg shared with us a fun new morning art project she’s done with her toddler, Lucie.

What you will need:
– Watercolor paint, or watered down tempera paint
– Paint brushes
– Cup of water
– Paper
– Crayon for wax
– Table salt

For wax resist painting: Use crayon followed by watercolor or watered down tempera paint.

For salt painting: Paint first. Then sprinkle salt on. Let it dry. The salt absorbs water/paint and leaves star like marks!
