Shiva Sticks are fun to use and my favorites are the metallic versions.For this project, I recommend wearing disposable gloves and gathering these supplies: iridescent Shiva Paintstik oil crayons; a stencil or a mask; thin, dark papers; and an X-acto knife.
Just before use, a Shiva Paintstik needs to be "primed" because, when not in use, it naturally forms an outer "skin" which must be removed. This is easily done with an X-acto knife -- but it should be done by an adult, never a child; these knives are sharp.
The mask I'm using here, in today's Project One, is my 4"X 4" Fern Fronds Silhouette m051.
|Above: Here, the surface has been well rubbed with a paper towel; the mask has not yet been lifted off.|
More than one "ghost print" can be made this way, until most of the residue crayon has been removed from the mask. Then the mask can be completely cleaned with an alcohol wipe.
