Saturday's Workout - Can You Resist?


I am fascinated by the waxed paper resist technique. In case you've never tried it, you take a piece of waxed paper and crinkle it in your hands. You then dig out (and in my case dust off) your iron and sandwich the crinkled piece of waxed paper between two sheets of white cromecoat (shiny sides touching the waxed paper). Iron gently on low setting (no steam). You can then brayer on ink. Where the wax adhered will remain white. The giraffe in this atc is stamped on paper using this technique. This is my submission for this week's Saturday's Workout challenge.

This is beautiful. I haven't tried your technique. In fact I'm not sure what chromecoat is, but I may try this on some glossy paper I have. Thanks for sharing a new technique.
