I love applying the ink this way!
After we created a background with alcohol ink on Yupo paper in Creative Chemistry 103, we used stencils as guides to remove ink with alcohol ink blending solution.
I used reds, purples and oranges and continued with the Halloween theme. 🙂
Creative Chemistry 103 explored another way to use Distress Crayons as a resist. The interesting thing is that one of the ways you can apply the crayons is as watercolor paint but after the crayons are dry, they can function as a resist against Distress Ink so you can ink right over the image and add water as you would to many Distress Ink techniques without it reacting to the image.
In Creative Chemistry 103 we used gesso as the surface for our Distress Crayons. Then we applied several stencils.
I had never thought about using gesso on paper!
Distress Grit-Paste has come to Creative Chemistry 103! After you apply the grit-paste and let it dry, you can colorize it with Distress Ink, Crayon, Paint, or Stain. I used crayons for the dirt effect below.
I love how I was able to make this look like it fell in my flower bed and was there for a while before I realized it.
