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 Water Color 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 your brush after each color to keep your 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 your painting. Imagine flying over the Atlantic or Pacific Ocean. What would it look like? Draw a desert or mountain landscape. You can be the travel guide and send your balloon wherever you want to go.
Always wash your brush in clean water when finished.
