Black Glue Pumpkins

   Water color Pumpkins

 Slightly Abstract Black Glue Pumpkins

 Teacher Sample.

   I mixed my own black glue. Using Elmer's glue,
 I added a high pigment black acrylic air brush paint. You can use any black water color paint from a tube or good acrylic paint. The reason I use a quality paint is the richer the color in the glue. 
3 part glue 1 part paint.

 Because I work with Pr-K and Kindergarten students, I prepped this project. Older kids can draw
the pumpkins then trace in black glue.

Make sure the glue is dry before painting.

Below are my master pieces by my young kiddos. 
I introduce watercolors and how to use. 
Enjoy the results below. This project was a big hit!
