|Chalk has a special use in this art craft for children.
This technique is a very good way to turn some simple lines, drawing or even writing, into a piece of art.
Use some coloured chalk to draw some lines, make them reasonably thick. You want to have a picture that has shapes to colour in.
Use wax crayons to colour between the lines. Do not colour over the lines, although a little bit does not matter, but in general leave the chalk lines visible. Although you cannot see at this stage, I also coloured around my egg shape with white crayon.
Then use dye, food colouring or watery paint to paint over the whole picture.
The wax crayons will resist the dye, but the chalk will not! Everywhere that is chalk or plain paper will soak up the dye and change how it looks in a very cool way!
