Little Clay Owl Painting Twist

I have done this clay owl unit for a number of years at the elementary school. Students love this lesson. Little Clay Owl (see steps and past examples by clicking the link).

In the past I have always had students paint their clay pieces with tempera cakes.  Over the summer I came across a Pinterest idea where they colored the clay with crayon and then painted the tempera on top of it.  It looked so neat, yet I couldn't believe it would work.  I mean use crayon on clay? Really??

This year I took the leap and tried it.  Much to my surprise it was a huge success.  
LOVE, LOVE the results!

  1. I like this look too - it kind of has a retro vibe :)
