Wax Resist Technique

Tip and Techniques

I was watching a video and came across a cool technique I haven't used in a long time. 
She was using plastic stencils as a resist. 
I've done this technique years ago with brass stencils. 
It was nice to re-visit new ways to use the popular stencils available today. 

Wax crayons
card stock or tag

Start with the stencil under your paper of choice. Rub a crayon over the area of the stencil.
Any color you choose
Now add watercolors over the waxed area to reveal the stencil and beautiful colors come through.
