Hello everyone here I am with my new idea of up cycling the waste . Up cyclingis another word for recycling in which leftovers from making an item are used to make other useful byproducts that creates environmental value. I have made acrylic paintings on waste ply boards..
creative products will help to save money and trees while protecting the environment from garbage. Up cycling trash requires creativity and ability to spot the diamond among stones that can help to create a piece of timeless jewelry.
Using even just one or two colors itself can force you to see your drawings in a new way.
Crayons were invented by Binney & Smith in 1902 and first offered for sale in 1903. Alice (Stead) Binney, a school teacher and wife of co-founder Edwin Binney, suggested the company manufacture an inexpensive alternative to imported crayons of that era.
They used hot beeswax combined with colored pigment to bind color into stone. Similar method used Ancient Greeks and Romans.
Crayons are sticks of colored wax, charcoal, chalk or some other material used for drawing and coloring. If they are made of oiled chalk then they are called “oil pastels”. Those made of oiled chalk are called “oil pastel”, those made of pigment mixed with a dry binder are just “pastels” while those made of pigment mixed with wax are called grease pencils or china markers.
Pastels were used by Leonardo da Vinciin 1495. Artists used “conte crayons” – something between a pastel and a standard crayon – since the late 1790s. In 19th century other pigments appeared (not just charcoal) and Jane Austen mentioned crayons in her “Pride and Prejudice” in 1813.
Colors can be blended by rubbing them with a paper stump or simply with a finger, and because they are not powdery like charcoal or chalks – being more similar to oil pastels – layers of color can be laid on top of each other to give a scum bling-style effect.
Remember the first time you picked up a crayon, right after you first learned your abc’s? Bring back the memories with this font! Enjoy!

I love everything about watercolor that I love involves fun and freedom. It is such a pleasure to feel paint slide across my paper surface.Once you’ve learned the rules of watercolor painting, it can be fun to break them.
Below i am sharing one of my water color abstract art work
For this abstract painting i have used flatten brush of number 2 .
used non waterproof pen for outlines.For the background of the painting i have used green -blue colors.on wet page drop the colors and let it bleed .it will provide a natural looking texture to the page background.
When working abstractly, it is key to take inspiration from all your senses and push them into your painting.
All you need are a pencil, watercolor paints, a piece of watercolor paper, a paint brush, and an hour or so of your time, and you’ll be on the road to making your own colorful abstract art!
Tip: When you are done with your watercolor painting, it is a good idea to spray your finished masterpiece with a permanent fixative like Krylon Crystal Clear. This permanent protective gloss coating that will not yellow with age. Moisture resistant and smudge proof.
