This type of painting relies on the principle that wax repels water. Have your child scribble with a crayon on a piece of soft construction paper. Afterwards, have him paint the entire picture with a translucent watercolor paint. Use a thick watercolor bursh. The wax areas "resist" the ink and the painting glows. To save this type of picture apply a think coat of varnish over the whole design before having it matted and framed.
