painted peacocks

This is a terrible picture of this project and doesn't do the poor guy any justice! I cut down a white paper to 10x16" (so it would be the perfect size to mount). We drew a resist on the white paper in white crayon and used blue glitter watercolor paint to paint over the resist. We then used some blue and purple tempera to paint the body and feathers.

The "eyes" on the feathers are layered paper circles and we also used black crayon to trace inside each of the feathers since the fringe kind of got lost in the painting process.

Lastly, we mounted on black paper and used silver Sharpies to make a framed border. These were so fun to make and are very striking in "real life"!
