A technique I am going to show you today is “resist”. It’s a fun and easy technique where a medium is placed on the paper and when a second medium is placed over the first it “resists” and doesn’t colour that area.
Here is a timelapse video of this resist process and I have included a bonus art journal page.
So, lets begin …
To start I gathered up all the items that I thought might create a resist effect as well some items I wasn’t sure about. These included from left to right Colour Embossing Powder (Snow White), China Marker, Ball point pen, Heavy White Gesso, Washi tape, wax crayon and gelato.
I then sprayed and painted over these mediums to see the effect. From top to bottom I used Colour Shimmer Spray (Leather), Colour Spray (Mocha), Colour Shimmer Dust (Midnight), Colour Artist Ink (Rust), Colour Shimmer Cube (Leather).
This is an art journal page that was a quick sketch to show the resist technique using the above mediums as well as Colour Artist Ink (Cranberry).
I hope you enjoy using this technique.
Until next time.
