1. Have the students draw very lightly their image of their chosen sea creature.
2. Use a white crayon and have the students press as hard as they can on every line that
they drew. It needs to be very thick
to resist the watercolor paint.

4. Paint the background wet with water first. Avoid getting the image wet.
5. Add the colors and let the water do most of the work. If it helps have the students push the paint
through. Do not over mix the colors.
6. When it is wet, salt the wet painting. Not too much salt.
7. Let dry overnight.
8. Rub off the salt.
9. Using the wet on wet isolation watercolor technique paint the sea creature. The wet on wet
isolation is where you paint an isolated area wet with water first and then add wet paint in that
area. Add two to three colors for the best effect. Let dry. Do not paint next to anything that is
damp or wet.
