Can You Resist?

Make wax-resist watercolor paintings or decorated eggs! The wax forms a barrier to keep the paint or dye from getting through. Why does this work? Think of your best answer, then read our explanation below.

What You’ll Need
  • wax or soy crayons
  • paper or a hard-boiled egg
  • water color paints or dyes
What to Do
  1. Use a wax or soy crayon (not a washable crayon) to draw on paper or on a hard-boiled egg.
  2. Then paint it with watercolor paints or dye it.
