Ever wonder how a hot air balloon rises in the sky? Discover the facts and paint a beautiful balloon. Could it circle the world without stopping?
Hot air balloons are found in many parts of the world. Their colorful designs dot the skies in many festivals during the warmer months. Design and draw your own hot air balloon using Crayola Washable Watercolor Paints.
Start your painting by drawing a large tear drop shape. This will form the main part of your balloon. Decorate as you wish. Make sure to rinse the brush after each color to keep the palette clean.
Underneath the balloon is a firebox used to make the hot air that fills the balloon, causing it to rise. The firebox is usually square in shape. Paint that next.
Add a basket that is used to carry people. Attach it to the balloon with a series of ropes called flying lines.
Add a background to the painting. Imagine flying over the Atlantic or Pacific Ocean. What would it look like? Draw a desert or mountain landscape. Students can be their own travel guide and send the balloon wherever they want to go.
Always wash the brush in clean water when finished.
