This sticker resist art project for kids is a fun way to combine collage with painting to create nighttime scenes.

Updated December 2022

We love a watercolor resist project. And so many lend themselves to wintertime. You can make glue resist snowmen, sticker resist starry night skies, or try these tape and sticker resist skies.

With this one, we used washi tape and star stickers to create some wintry night skies, as well as snowflakes, and even our initials!

  1. Create your scene

    Use the washi tape to create a house (or snowflake, skyscraper, cityscape, car, robot, trees, boat, initials, etc.). You can assemble a variety of pieces and other stickers as desired and even cut some of them into the shape you would like.

    Add star stickers for a night sky effect.

  2. Add paint

    Paint over and around your tape and sticker scene with watercolor paint for the night sky.

    Sprinkle salt on the wet watercolors if desired for a starry look.

  3. Let dry

    Once dry, brush off the excess salt then lift off the stickers and washi tape, revealing the scene.

    If desired, you can trace the buildings and add detail at this point with a pen or pencil.
