How to paint with the Connector paint box

The unique Connector paint box is perfect for any techniques and applications that children and teachers may want to explore in class. The rich colours, easy application and high yield of these paints ensure that children are able to enjoy lasting painting fun.

Wet on wet technique

Start with moistening the paper and selecting the colours you like the most.

Than paint the shape of the fantasy cat with watercolour.
By adding some stripes the cat gets more structured.
With a pen you can add the details as well as the cats face.

Folding technique

Start with painting one half of a turtle on a paper which is already folded in half.
Then simply fold and press the still wet painting on the other half of the paper.
Thanks to the symmetrical drawing you now have a whole turtle!
Now you can draw the shell of the turtle with brown watercolour.

Craft paper technique

Grab a craft paper and start with painting the tail of the squirrel.
Now you can add the rest of its body using different colours
With the darker colour you can contour the squirrel and add a nut in its hands.
Finally the squirrel needs eyes! Use a smaller brush for adding this detail.

Print technique

Prepare by asking an adult to grave a circle in a potato.  
Start with colouring the circle with watercolour.
Now you can start stanping the pattern of an insect on the paper.
The legs of the insect can also be made out of potato print.

Crayon technique

Draw a submarine with waxing crayons. Additionally you can draw bubbles around the submarine and the submarines lightbeams with a white waxing crayon for a special effect.
Continue by painting all over the picture with watercolour. Now you can see the special effect: The blue watercolour rolls of the white waxing colour and underwater bubbles appear!
Now the submarine is ready for its underwater expedition!
