April Showers and Jellyfish Watercolor Resist

First graders have been working on this painting the past few weeks. We are studying weather patterns and having fun learning new techniques with watercolor like blowing, dripping, and adding salt! 

 Third grade is painting these fun jellyfish watercolor resists! I LOVE this Liquitex gloss Medium and Varnish!! It makes a great resist! 

 We just painted this gloss medium right on the paper to create our jellies...

We are using warm colors for the Jelly and cool colors+salt for the water

I just LOVE the texture from the salt!

 One of the high school teachers in our district used the Liquitex Gloss Medium and Varnish to make these gorgeous multimedia watercolor resists for Dia De Los Muertos. They stamped the Gloss on the paper, drew their design, and painted over it. We are going to use this technique with our Sureal Self Portraits this year! Cannot WAIT!!


  1. What brand watercolor paints do you use? The colors are so vibrant!

  2. $9 Million Fraud Judgment Against Antony Gordon In Federal Court
    This fraud judgment has led to Antony Gordon’s Chapter Seven bankruptcy, which is a straight liquidation.
    This (2:13-ap-01536-DS 1568931 Ontario Ltd., an Ontario (Canada Corporati v. Gordon et al) looks like a $9 million dollar fraud judgment in federal court against Rabbi Chanan (Antony) Gordon (an attorney, motivational speaker, and hedge fund manager).

  3. How long did i take you to make the jelly fish project? I am thinking to try it in one 50 min class

  4. What part of the pictures above is stamped with medium? Im having trouble telling. Only the flags look like they may be stamped the skulls look hand done (?) Thanks

  5. I purchased the liquitex you show and it is clear on the paper. Yours appears white. Did you mix yours with white paint?
