Lampadine colorate

Un nuovo, semplice esercizio per comprendere le proprietà dei colori primari. Abbiamo copiato diverse forme di lampadine con un pennarello nero indelebile sovrapponendo i disegni come se le lampadine fossero sparse in una scatola. Ogni lampadina è infatti sovrapposta ad un’altra in modo che  i tre colori primari con cui le abbiamo dipinte, risultassero sovrapposti per formare i colori secondari.
First we painted with watercolor yellow, then red and finally we overlayed the blue.

Eventually we painted a gray stripe on the metal part of the bulb to simulate the shine of metallic material. (You could also paint a black background to bring out the colors)





  1. I am always looking for new ways to teach/show colour mixing- this is perfect!! What are those pens/markers you are using? (photos 4 and 5)- I've never seen them before; they look so cool.

  2. SO fun!

  3. Hi Miss! thank you for the comment! I used a permanent black marker, any kind of it that you can find in a stationery will be good, the most important thing is that it must be Water-resistant and with a round tip.

  4. Thanks for your comment Paintedpaper!

  5. Ciao Miriam!!! Ottieni sempre splendidi risultati … favolosa l'idea delle lampadine ..sei una prof. veramente creativa!!!!

  7. I made a similar collaborative lesson using overlapping hands. The students loved it. This lesson you've done allows for colour mixing, very smart. Thanks.

  8. good idea! I even made using overlapping bottles and glasses, like a “Murano’s glasses shop”… I’ll show you in a next post! Thanks for your comment!

    Ciao Daila. Io le ho disegnate a mano libera su un grande foglio, magari se mi mandi una email ti mando la foto del disegno… è un po’ sfuocata ai bordi ma forse potrebbe servirti.
