- Make 3 different texture cards.
- Draw different patterns on each of the pieces of Bristol board with glue.
- Use the texture cards as rubbing plates.
- Place a piece of paper on top of the rubbing plate and colour over it with a crayon.
- This is called making a rubbing.
- See what happens when you place the paper on top of the plate in a different direction and use a different coloured crayon to make the rubbing.
- Once you are satisfied with the rubbing paint over it with watercolour paint.
- The paint and crayon won't mix.
- Notice how the paint sits on top of the wax crayon creating interesting textures.
- When the paint dries you can polish the card by lightly rubbing it with a tissue.
- The card now looks as if it has 3-dimensional textures even though it is flat.
- This is called simulated texture.
