Product Review and Free Sample

A few weeks ago, I received a "Swag Bag" of products from Liquitex, Winsor& Newton, Reeves,Conte' a' Paris, Letraset, and SnazarooFirst, I want to say THANK YOU for all of the great goodies that we have been using and having alot of fun with!  I have always used liquitex acrylic paint for my own personal paintings and also use Winsor&Newton watercolor paint.

They have also graciously offered for YOU a FREE sample of this neat Liquitex paint pen!! Just follow the link below to get one and try it out!

I will start with my absolute FAVORITE part of the swag bag! This would be the water soluble Wax pastels!
There is a great variety of bright colors, and can be painted with water to create a beautiful finished look like paint!
Here is an up close look at the "paint effect" from the pastels

One of the best things for me is that they come in class packs, which I will definitely be ordering next Fall!!

 Another product we tried was the Conte'a Paris pastels pack. Students were using printed graffiti alphabets to write their names and other phrases. Some students drew them with markers, then colored them in with the pastels for a soft smooth look

 I had a student create a colorful border using cool colors...

 ...and I used it as a layer for this adorable newborn photo I took last week! I love the idea of colorful custom borders for photos with children's artwork! You can find directions for how to do this from an older post here Fun With Photoshop Tutorial 

 Another product I like is the Reeves watercolor pencils. 

 They make a very vibrant color when painted with water

 here is the drawing after he painted it..below

 Here is another before...

                 ....And After

 Here are a few more pictures of artworks created with a mixed media of colored pencils, markers, water soluble pastels, and soft pastels from our Swag Bag! Another great big Thank You to Liquitex, Conte a Paris, Winsor& Newton, Reeves, Letraset, and Snazaroo
