Glue Resist Art Project for Kids – Pumpkin 25



We love glue resist art projects, one of our favorites was the watercolor leaf garland we made last Autumn and this year we decided to try a variation using black paper for our glue resist pumpkins.

We love art resist projects.  There is something about glue, wether it be from a squeezy bottle or from a glue gun.  In fact art resist is a great first time glue gun project as there is less temptation to touch the glue as you are not looking for it to bond anything.

Materials

  • Black card
  • Glue gun or glue (UK Link/US Link)
  • White pencil
  • Chalk pastels or oil pastels

Glue Resist Art Project for Kids – Pumpkin

 

We were inspired by these glue line pumpkins and these pumpkins using glue resist.  We decided to use black paper and oil pastels, but they look equally as great on watercolour paper with paints and using chalk pastels.

We drew our pumpkin’s from life using some small pot ones that I had.  If you can get hold of mini pumpkins in the shops, then use them.  They are much better for shape and shading.

We practiced drawing them on to sheets of paper first, before using a white pencil to draw them on to cardstock.  But you could skip this and apply the glue directly to the paper.

The benefit of using a glue gun is that it dries faster, making this project faster for impatient children who struggle to wait for the glue to dry!

If you are using PVA glue, then it is best to allow the glue to dry overnight.  Once dry then you can erase the white lines .

This is a really great project for younger children too as the colour is contained.  We used water soluble oil pastels this time.  Glue resist art project for kids pumpkins

We talked about shading and creating a 3D effect by using lighter colours in the center of the segments.  Maxi then finished off his picture by adding some ground and sky to it.

I love how it turned out and also how his friends single pumpkin using chalk turned out too.   We just used some hair spray to seal the picture.

This Glue resist art project for kids is perfect for autumn and fall. The pumpkins look amazing and it is so simple to do.

How ace do they look!  They were so fun to do and will look great year on year when we bring them out to decorate for Autumn.
