2013-12-12-snowflakerubplates02Place one of the Snowflake Rubbing Plates underneath the white paper. Tip: Tape the edges of the Snowflake Rubbing Plate to the paint tray to keep it from moving about. This will be important for the next step.

2013-12-12-snowflakerubplates03Rub the white crayon across the surface of the paper. Make sure the rubbing plate stays in one spot while you rub the page with the crayon.2013-12-12-snowflakerubplates06

Tear one sheet of paper towel and fold it into a square. Dip a corner of the square into the blue watercolor paint. Next, dab the dipped corner onto the white crayon rubbing. Spread the paint outwards from the center. You will start to notice the crayon rubbing “pop” out from the paint color.

Make additional crayon rubbings at various angles on the white paper. Use different Snowflake Rubbing Plates or vary the position of the snowflakes.
