"Paint" your favorite safari animal with black glue and then paint with watercolors to create your own resist painting. This project also has an instructional video available!


  • Step 1
    Using a pencil, draw a safari animal on a sheet of watercolor paper. With a paint brush or applicator swab, go over the pencil lines with black glue; the glue will act as a resist once it has dried. If you don't have black glue, thoroughly mix 4 tablespoons black Handy Art Liquid Watercolor with 1/4 cup Aleene's "Tacky" Glue.
  • Step 2
    Once the glue has dried, create color washes using Handy Art Liquid Watercolors, clean water and a paint brush.
