Ahhh, there’s something totally magical about snowflakes. It doesn’t matter how you feel about the general cold state of winter- if you slow down to look at an individual snowflake it’s a miraculous little work of art. Today we’re going to use wax paper cut snowflakes to make amazing prints in watercolor- catching all the little details!
Oil pastels and watercolors are always a dynamic pair and this snowflake design is no exception. One part science and one part oil pastel resist magic add up to sweet, cool colored snowflakes designs to brighten up any winter day!
Pretty much all of us have folded up scraps of paper and made snowflake designs, right? These Japanese notan art inspired snowflakes go a step further and incorporate the idea of positive and negative space based on the Japanese concept of notan. A super small supply list, a graphic finished product, and little elemental art knowledge make this project a win!
