Resistance and Acrylic Paint

Hi everyone. Nancy here with a quick tutorial on using acrylic paint as a resist medium.

You will need acrylic paint (I like to use white) and a brush, water based ink pad (I like Tim Holtz Distress Inks), your stamp or stamps, paper towel and water.

To start, paint your stamp with the acrylic paint.

and stamp your project.
Then, using your inks, begin to color your project.
You can color over your stamped image. Continue adding color till you get the look you like.

Dampen a paper towel with water. Do not use a baby wipe as they tend to be too wet.
Gently wipe the ink off your paint, revealing your original stamped image.
And embellish as desired.

Have fun.
