These Crayon Resist Watercolor Fish are the most colorful, vibrant fish in the sea. Without question. This is such a great summer craft and ocean art project. Plus, it comes with a Free Fish Template, too.
We are really enjoying crayon resist art projects these days. We did our Crayon Resist Watercolor Shamrocks, Crayon Resist Watercolor Heart Cards, and our Crayon Resist Watercolor Spider Webs, as well. All fun and so easy to do!
For our Crayon Resist Watercolor Fish you will need the Fish Template, cut out on a heavier style paper so it’s easier to trace with a black marker. The template includes the main body of the fish, as well as a fin.
The remainder of the supplies for our art and craft project include heavy white cardstock or watercolor paper, watercolor paints, a white crayon, large googly eyes, scissors, and a glue stick.
Crayon Resist Watercolor Fish
- Fish Template
- White cardstock
- White crayon
- Watercolor paint
- Googly eyes, large
- Glue stick
Begin by printing the fish template. Heavier paper makes it easier to trace without the paper buckling or slipping as much, especially if you’re creating more than one fish.
Trace the template on a sheet of heavy white cardstock.
Cut out both the fish and fin.
Now take the white crayon and make designs for your fish. A circle mouth, scales, fin lines, maybe bubbles. However you want your fish to look! You can barely see them, but they’re there! That’s what makes this process so fun and unique.
Then begin painting with watercolors. Don’t forget the fin!
Once dry, glue the fin to the fish.
And adhere a large googly eyes, too.
So easy and fun, you can make a whole school of colorful fish in no time!
