WEEK TWO: Students paint the entire crayon white with acrylic paint. This makes the colors look much brighter when complete.
WEEK 3: Students paint the ends of the crayon with a solid acrylic paint (Michaels brand is good and cheap). White paint is used to tint the main color and applied where the crayon paper would be.
WEEK 4: Strips of black duct tape are torn to make a stripe on each end. Students cover the crayon with Mod Podge or Collag Pauge. An oval is cut from a long strip of tape, and poster markers are used to write inside.
