Crayon resist is a type of art where crayon is used to create an outline and then a watery medium is used to create a painting within the outlines. The crayon resists the watery medium, and therefore the crayon remains visible creating a border around the painting. The finished product is a beautiful piece of art that combines the use of crayon and a watery medium.

Crayon resist is a form of art where crayon is used as a resist to create an image with white wax on a dark background. When crayon resist art is finished, the artwork should be sealed with a layer of matte varnish for a glossy finish. Special wax-based crayons are available for crayon resist, which allow for smoother application and better blending.
