  1. Gather your materials. You will need some white construction paper, a bowl of water, crayons, and a black Sharpie marker.
  2. Draw a design on your paper with the crayons. You can be as creative as you like! Once you’re happy with your design, use the Sharpie marker to trace over the lines of your drawing.
  3. Dip the paper into the bowl of water, making sure that all of the lines are wet. The water will help the dye from the crayons spread evenly.
  4. Place the paper on a flat surface and begin painting over it with different colors of tempera paint. Work from light to dark so that you don’t accidentally paint over a lighter color with a darker one.
  5. Allow the paint to dry completely before displaying your artwork proudly for all to see!
