    I really like these, and have tried to have a go myself, but even when I buy supposedly waterbased pens for it, I can never get the pen to dissolve like this. It’s very frustrating. What pens did you use for it?

      I used just normal Stabilo pens. First, Annabel drew a picture with the pens and then she very carefully painted the picture over with a wet brush.

      We have done many pictures using this technique and some pens don`t dissolve.. but most of them should do.

      Kritseladmine on ka kunst :)

      Just, see on hea võimalus laste töid ära kasutada. Muidu koguneb ju neid lihtsalt liiga palju.

      See on värviline paber. Lõikasin lapse pildi välja ja siis lõikasin tugevamast värvilisest paberist veidi suurema tüki ja liimisin lapse töö sinna peale. Lõpuks liimisin kogu kuapatuse kaadile. Vildikaga tegin lapse töö äärde jooned.. annab veidi ilmet ja katab ära kääridega lõikamise jooned.

      Ilus onju.. ma olen nii rahul ja seda on nii lihtne teha!
