Learn how to create frame-worthy artwork using Crayola Watercolours and string that you can find around your house!
Pop a Crayola Watercolour tablet out of the package and dissolve it in 2 oz. of hot water. Use a craft stick to stir the watercolour tablet until fully dissolved. (Adult assistance required)
Cut a piece of string and add it to a bowl of paint. Use a craft stick to fully submerge the string under water, but be sure to leave a few inches of string out of the water for when you’re ready to remove it. Repeat this step for each colour of paint that you mix.
Lift your first piece of string out of the paint. Pinch the end of the string and run your thumb and forefinger along the length of the string to remove excess paint.
Arrange the string in your desired pattern on a sheet of cardstock paper. Leave the non-paint covered part of the string reaching off the bottom edge of the paper.
Place a second piece of cardstock on top of the paint-covered string and apply medium pressure on top of the paper with one of your hands. Use your other hand to slowly pull the string out from between the two sheets of paper.
Remove the top sheet of paper to reveal your design!
Layer different coloured strings and repeat steps 3-6 to create colourful patterns.
