Ever try impasto? Famous artists including Rembrandt and van Gogh used this 3-D technique! Create bold paintings with Crayola Texture It! Mixing Medium.
Invite students to find out about artists who used a technique called impasto—thick, textured paint with visible brush strokes—to create 3-D effects. How did they make textured paint? Learn more about some of their famous paintings done in this style.
This is a quick, contemporary way to achieve much the same effect! To create the impasto mixture, tear soft paper such as facial tissue or tissue paper into small pieces. In a bowl, students use a craft stick to stir Crayola School Glue with the paper.
Students cover their work areas with recycled newspaper. Spread the impasto mixture on watercolor paper with a craft stick or other tool. Experiment with different amounts and styles of application. Air-dry work on a flat surface for at least a day.
Students combine Crayola Premier™ Tempera Paints with the Texture It! Mixing Medium. Bold color combinations look great on impasto! Prepare a variety of different colors and combinations to get dramatic effects. Paint impasto surfaces. Air-dry paintings overnight.
In small groups, ask students to share their work and discuss how they each incorporated learning about Impasto techniques into their original artwork.
