Watercolor and Black Glue Fall Leaf

Window Preschool Art

    My favorite time of year is fall when the leaves change color and the weather turns cold and windy. I love the look of watercolors and black glue and decided to try it in a way that could decorate our windows. I truly love the way they turned out. They give our room that fall color glow!     Supplies Needed:
  • watercolor paper
  • black construction paper
  • fall watercolors
  • paint brush
  • black glue
  To get ready I mix the black glue. easy to make I just add black paint to a glue bottle and mix until I get the color I want. Using the black construction paper I cut out the outline of a leaf I like the way black looks but you could use any color for your outline. The Frogs painted the watercolors then added the black glue to the outline leaf and pressed it to their wet watercolor.       They then added the black glue, I had some large leaves on hand so they could see the way a leaf has lines that run through them. They used the glue to make their own lines. As they got started I worried they might be using to much glue for the light to shine through, keeping my thoughts to myself of course.                 When dry I cut around the outline and hung in the windows. I love the way they look, and surprisingly the black glue is not to much the light still shines through!
