Drawing With GLUE - Beautiful Pumpkins!

I still cannot get over how these multi-media watercolor, sharpie and glue (yes...glue) pumpkins turned out ;) 

Please check out how these almost stained glass-eque paintings developed! We had over 22 kids working on these,...so this is just a sampling of this awesome work!

First, I had them draw free hand with glue the week before so that their pumpkins were dry to paint on... 

Drawing with glue = SO FUN

The next week, when our pumpkins were dry, the kids outlined their pumpkins with a fine point sharpie.

The sharpie does not bleed when wet and the glue acts as a barrier between the watercolors so they turned out absolutely spectacular!

Step by step we built color to give our pumpkins dimension.

And then we used only a few colors to build our sunsets. So beautiful!
