Ammon & Carter share another Mixed-Media Masterpiece July 20, 2015

Need (Suggested beginning doses: more paint for darker color OR add more water to lighten it up)

1 Plastic Cup

4 tsp. Water

2 drops Watercolor Blue 

1 Burnt Sienna Oil Pastel Crayon (Rembrandt)

1 Turquoise Blue Oil Pastel Crayon

1 Light Orange Oil Pastel Crayon (Rembrandt)

1 Sheet Water Color Paper

1 Paintbrush

Beach Scene Stickers (eksuccess brand)

Clear glue ( I prefer Elmer’s)

Step 1: With a pencil, etch the line of the beach and etch a line of where the ocean meets the sky.

Step 2: Make a perfect circle for the sun with the round lid of any container.

Step 3: Color the beach, ocean (sea), and the sun with your oil pastel crayons.

Step 4: Mix your water and drops of watercolor blue and apply it liberally over the sky. Once again, the oil based pastel repels the watercolor, so if some gets on the ocean, it’s okay. It can also add to the different hues in the colors of the ocean. 😉 Allow to dry for 24 hours.

Step 5: Stickers do not go well on the slick oil based crayons, SO add clear glue to the backs of the stickers and place them where you want them. Beach scene is ready for display!
