Koi Collage

So, 4th grade was totally amazed by the wet-on-wet watercolor painting technique we used! We sprayed our paper with water then added dots of blue paint. The colors spread out and gave our artworks a WOW factor! You can see the wet-on-wet painting in action on our Twitter page. We also used "pigeon finger" splatter painting and salt for more texture and variety.

After our paint dried, we created pop-up 3D koi fish based on real koi fish designs. We got a beautiful view of warm and cool colors working together. The final touch was a white oil pastel for ripples in the water. Love these and they were so fun to make!
