-.-* No, white crayons were NOT used to do this. They painted the birds in WATER (hint, why the ink gets all flowy when it hits the paper), and then dropped ink on it. I’ve done it before with Japanese ink. the use of the white crayon on this doesn’t even make any sense. And even if they DID use white crayon to draw the birds first, it would mess up the water, which would then mess up the shape of the birds.
