This craft is super interesting. Kids usually first draw with a pencil and color the picture but with this piece of art, kids either draw and then outline with glue or even skip using pencil and directly draw with glue. It definitely becomes more interesting to see how it all works out.
Colored chalk or soft pastels are used in this project. They are messy yet blend in so beautifully that I highly recommend having them in your kid’s art supplies.
Black chart paper
Bottle of fevicol
Pencil and eraser
Colored chalk/soft pastels
Let’s get started
1. Go alongwith your child’s ideas of drawing. We have chosen underwater theme here.
2. Let them draw with a pencil and then squeeze glue to outline the whole drawing.
3. Let the glue dry up. It will take around 45 minutes to an hour depending on the size of your drawing and where you place it. We keep it under the sun and that sped up the drying process. To our surprise, the glue started turning transparent as it dried. Many of us I’m sure didn’t know of this.
4. You have your canvas ready to be filled with colors.
5. Chalk colors create a lot of dust and also need blending with fingertips to even it out. 6. Make sure to cover all.the nooks and crannies inside each section made by the glue to cover the black paper.
Your Glue drawing is ready.
We have created a quick video when Eira created her underwater glue drawing.
Hope you enjoy it!
