Crayon Resist Technique

Crayon Resist is based on what we use to do to eggs at Easter time.
We'd use a crayon and draw on the boiled eggs and then when we put them in the dye ink , the ink would resist the crayon.
 What I did with this is stamp the images in basic Black ink and then colored the bunnies with a white crayon. Then colored the rest with SU markers. Taking a sponge dipped in dye ink sponges over the whole page.
 The bunnies stay white because they resist the dye ink.
 Then took a paper towel and buffed off any ink that was on top of the bunnies.
 I love how they turned out.
 This is one of the techniques I'll be showing at my Tips and Technique class.
 I also used a masking technique to make the bunnies look like they are in front of the mushrooms.
Check my calendar on my website to see when you can attend an event to learn something new.  Love to have you.
