following on from lorraine's class, i thought i'd give you another type of resist to try out.

you need:
glossy card (i used semi-gloss, which works, but the ink bleeds a bit more than proper gloss)
stamp/s
staz on ink
dye ink
a crayon (cheap kids' crayons are fine! i just pinched one of ashlinn's.)


first, stamp your image in stazon, and wait for it to dry. when stamping on glossy card, dye and pigment inks will smear in the later steps.


using your crayon, colour in where you want you white areas to be - i used green so you can tell where i coloured.


with your dye ink, cover the stamped and crayon-ed image. you could sponge the ink on (and use different colours if you wanted to) but i just went direct to paper.


finally, rub the crayon off with a tissue, and you'll be left with the white parts.


if you wanted, you could probably use a white crayon on normal cardstock without rubbing it off - just be aware that the ink may bleed a bit more.

Great effect Anna! I have a question though - do you have to use dye inks for the sponging part?

pigment ink works, but a lot rubs off the page (so it ends up lighter than it should). it might work okay on normal paper with white crayon if you dab the excess off with a tissue.

I wondered if it might have been the slick surface and the pigment not drying quick enough on it. I might try it with white crayon - think I saw Flea doing something similar to this once with white crayon.

I don't think I have any crayons.. but I imagine a candle may work just as well.
