Wet Chalk Tape Resist Art for Kids

One of our favorite art activities involves using wet chalk. It's a fun medium to work with anytime but when you add in some tape resist - it's just downright awesome.


What You Need:
Chalk
Water
Tape (I used blue painter's tape I had on hand.)
Paper (I used black construction paper this time but you can also use card stock - it's sturdier.)

What To Do:
Use your tape to create a pattern on your paper.


Wet your chalk and use the wet chalk to paint/color the exposed parts of your paper.



Allow your art work to dry.


Remove the tape and behold your masterpiece. It did pull the paper a bit because I used construction paper but our finished products still looked great. My tips would be to wait until your paper was dry to remove the tape (wet paper rips easily) and remove it slowly to minimize and tearing.


Aren't they FABULOUS!


This is a great activity for kids of all ages and there are so many possibilities for what you can create. 

Have fun creating,
Bern

  3. Gorgeous! Do you use fixative or hair spray afterwards to make sure the chalk sticks to the paper?
