Crayon Resist Background Tutorial
Are you guys ready for another background tutorial?
Today I've got a really simple one. It takes only a few supplies and is super fun and easy.
Here it is:
Here's the supplies you'll need:
🔸a piece of card stock
🔸a white crayon
🔸ink pads (I used pigment inks)
This time I'll go ahead and put the instructions before the pic.
Draw a design or picture on your card stock using the white crayon.
(Since you wouldn't be able to see my design because it's white, I drew it using my iPad for you to see)
Smear your first color of ink on your card stock.
(You can use a blending tool, however I seemed to misplace mine so I just went ahead and applied the ink directly from the pad)
Continue to apply different colors of ink.
(I used four different colors. A stamp pad that has multiple shades of one color (like kaleidocolor) would work good too)
Keep on applying all the colors till your card stock is completely covered. No white marks except for the crayon.
(I probably applied the colors about two different times)
Gently buff your work to let the crayon resist show through.
(I didn't have any tissue so I used a piece of toilet paper)
And that's it!
Here is the Gothic arch atc I made using the background:
On a side note, you don't always have to do a design for this technique. You could also draw a picture.
Let me know if you make this background or send me a pic!
