This is a simple, but an amazing process that artists use to transfer images. We made it more "magical", by using rainbow colors! It can be done in many different mediums too, including pencil, crayon, chalk, and oil pastel. Usually it is done by creating a drawing and then coloring on the back of the drawing and retracing the drawing on the front to transfer it to another paper. Keep reading to find out the process we used to create our own Rainbow Transfer Drawings.
To create your Rainbow Transfer Drawings you'll need:
Oil Pastels or Crayons
To begin, fold your paper in half and on one side color rainbow colors fairly heavily. We used oil pastels. Oil pastels are more vibrant and you don't have to press as hard to get dark results. If you use crayons press hard and realize you image won't be as vibrant.
Now, fold your paper in half with the colored crayon or oil pastel coloring sandwiched between (the oil pastel coloring should be inside. Begin drawing on the outside and make sure to use pressure when drawing. More pressure will create a better result.
After your drawing is complete, open up for your Rainbow Surprise Transfer Drawing! C could have put a little more pressure, but she still had pretty good results. The cool thing is that you get two drawings: one pencil and one rainbow drawing!
