Paper Batik



To make this craft project you will need construction paper, crayons, tempera paint in a dark color, a paintbrush, newspaper, a hot iron, and an adult to supervise.

To begin completely color your paper with crayons - create any type of picture you like.

When you are finished, crumple the paper into a tight ball and then gently unfold it.

Notice how the surface has cracked. Brush dark colored paint on the paper to create a mosaic effect.

Rinse the picture under water and allow to dry.

When dry place between 2 sheets of newspaper and gently iron to smooth out wrinkles.

Enjoy Crafting!
