Snowflake Drawing with Metalic Markers
White Tempera Paint
The Geometry of Snowflakes
I painted with white tempera paint using a combination of a brush and a Q-tip. The brush (pointed) works best for getting the points of a triangle. The Q-tip works best for round shapes.
See a video of the painted snowflake in this Instagram Story.
For the final step I outlined with a colored marker. This doesn’t have to be a permanent marker since no other wet media will be added. Students could select a contrasting color or a color that matches the background.

First, draw the snowflake design in pencil. The page you see with the shape ideas is part of the Snowflake Drawing Lesson.
