The grade 3 students called these 3d candy canes. The 3d effect is made by using white, then a dark and light shade of pastel. They started by drawing the outline of the candy cane. They used the dark pastel in a back and forth motion on the outside line of the candy cane. Then they used the same motion to make a white line down the middle of the candy cane, being careful to leave a space between the dark and the white. The lighter shade is used blend the dark and the white by running the colour from side to side through the other shades.
