Look at my proud students holding up their spring picture.

This little thought came in an emergency.  Finished children with no spare paper cause chaos so think quick is the only way.

HOW 2: A2 black sugar paper, white chalk outllines and oil pastel to colour in.  The chalk outlines must NOT be coloured over!!! So important.  When the group was finished I helped them to dye over the chalk lines with BLACK.  You can use any colour. 

Tip: Wash over the ink with a clean wet brush quickly after inking to get the excess black off and brighten the colours.  The kids took tissue and dabbed the ink off for a quick dry and quick removal of the black so that is stained the pastel less.

I used this  method with Picasso style self portraits too.  So watch out for that post.
