Technique # 9 - acrylic paint resist.



This is one of those techniques that stay "hidden" until the last step. 


I chose this spread just because it was an uninterrupted spread (one continuous sheet as opposed to two separate pages).


I wrote one of my favorite lines from the Wizard of Oz spoken by Glinda the good witch.


Next I poured out some rather "weak" white acrylic paint and my new circle stencil and a sponge dauber and made circles on the pages


Whole spread


Close up of the paint. It became much more transparent when dried.


I flooded the spread with multiple colors of watercolor. This is the "wet" picture.


This is the dry picture. This spread and the woven page are my favorites so far.

    1. I like the way the acrylic paint both resists the watercolors yet lets it collect and dry in it's surface.
