Product Description
Put down that Zyrtec. Sometimes watery eyes are a good thing!

Introduce wet-on-dry watercolor technique with this impressive project. It only looks difficult! Results are consistent and eye-popping. (Pun intended)
Be advised, this is a self-portrait and requires use of a digital camera and a bit of mild photo editing. Instructions provided make use of the free pixlr.com photo editing website but any photo editor should be able to handle what is only about 5 steps. (cropping, soft-edge erasing, blur, level adjust, and posterize) I typically do the photo edit myself but computer access is all that is needed for students to execute those steps themselves. In addition to a camera and computer, also needed for this project: a printer, watercolor paint, brushes, pencil, eraser, tape, watercolor paper and water and paint containers. One can optionally include the use of watercolor pencils, if desired. This is very successful project for 7th grade and up.
