Outline all of the work with a black crayon...and make it dark!
Then color well using heavy wax...no white spaces!
Wrinkle away...gently smash your owl into a ball.
Press it hard and open again slowly- do not rip.
Repeat this step about 6 times until your owl has "wax cracks" throughout.
Set up a Batik station like the above photo. You will need:
Watered down black paint
wads of paper towels
Students will rub a 4" area of their owl with the watered paint and then blot (not rub) it up from the wax. All of the ink will saturate into the cracks...not the wax...giving your owls an ancient effect.
