Creative Chemistry 103: Distress Crayon Watercolor Resist

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.
