Make any holes that might be required in the finished product before the playdough is left to harden. It can also be painted after it has hardened.

Wax Drawing and Printing

Apply a color wash over desired wax markings created from a wax crayon or candle either on paper or fabric. Where the wax has been applied, the paint or dye will not stick creating a print.

This form of art is called batik. The word batik is from Java, it is represented through cultural marital art forms throughout Africa and Asia.

Resources that can be used:

  • Wax paper
  • Crayon shavings
  • Tissue paper pieces
  • Cellophane pieces
  • Leaves

Encourage the children to come up with suitable resources!

Have children arrange pattern, picture onto desired piece of wax paper, wax side up. Make the wax paper long enough to fold over the desired creation.

Adult: Ensure wax paper is folded back over the entire creation ensuring it is covered. Place a thin material over the desired area to protect iron, and continue to iron until wax paper has sealed.

This is a great way to make stain glass windows, group murals and wrapping paper and cards.
