Black Lines on Black Paper

halloween arts and crafts projects

If you have ever tried to make glue drawings for chalk pastel or color stick art, but didn’t love the way the glue dried?

Drawing with white glue, letting it dry, and then coloring the paper is a great technique as the lines are set and can be colored over endlessly. The only frustration I have is that the white glue will sometimes dry cloudy, and sometimes not. The good news is that Elmer’s now makes this purple glue that dries shiny and black every single time. I love the contrast of the shiny and the matte, makes for an interesting drawing even before any color is put on.

P.S. This is not a paid endorsement, I just happened to get some of this stuff as a gift, and thought that if I didn’t know about the latest glues on the market, then a few others of you might not either.
