Black paper with crayons and circles cut from water colored paper This was a pretty project. We used Prismacolor pencils for the branches. Don't forget to paint the white reflection on the watercolored circles. ~Mandy~
Students used liquid watercolors on diffusing paper circles for a wet on wet technique to bleed analogous colors for their ornaments. They added a liquid watercolor pearl paint for light reflection. While these dried they created their background composition of tree branches using oil pastels. Ornament details were added with a gold Berol Prismacolor pencil. Ornaments were then glued to their backgrounds.
