What Is Watercolor Resist?

Watercolor resist is very simple. It is simply the process of using a water resistant substance on dry watercolor paper before painting.

In this case the crayon wax resists the watercolor, which means it can’t adhere to the paper in those places. When you’ve finished painting the sheet, you’ll be able to clearly see all the spots where you created snowflakes!

It’s super simple, but really fun to see come to life.

How To Do Watercolor Resist With A Crayon

Since crayons are usually a common art supply you have at home, they’re great for doing watercolor resist projects.

For this Frozen 2 inspired craft, you’ll simply be making snowflakes all over the page.

If you want your child make the snowflakes as well, show them how easy it is to make simple snowflakes with intersecting lines.

We think it’s most fun for kids if an adult makes the snowflakes and they make them “magically” appear.

The only tricky part of making these snowflakes it not being able to see where you’ve drawn with the white crayon. In order to get the best snowflake shapes, we drew a few lines, then held the paper at an angle to see the shape, then drew some more.

New Frozen 2 Snowflakes

Since the movie isn’t out yet, we don’t know much about what happens. One thing I did see over and over as I searched the internet is a scene with some sort of special snowflakes in the shape of diamonds.

These diamond snowflakes are the inspiration for this watercolor project.

You can see what I’m talking about in this trailer:

We don’t know what they mean yet, but there’s a lot of speculation about these special diamonds!
