We have uninvited but welcome guests who visit us each morning around breakfast time.... They're a bit noisy, and they can be a bit messy (!) but they don't overstay their welcome, and I love seeing them :)
We've created Rainbow Lorikeet pictures using neon oil pastels on black paper. After a bit of experimenting and practice we start by drawing our birds in black oil pastel on black paper, then filling them in with white oil pastel, trying not to go over the black lines. We then create a border design with white lines, going over them to make sure they are firmly drawn.
The best part is adding colour with the neon pastels - they really have the 'wow' factor, and the kids love using them!
