Dyps faux batik

I absolutely love this method to make cards and cover boxes. It's a lot of fun and the results are amazing.


Watercolor paper
Watercolor paints
Tortillion or Eraser
Rubber Cement
Jac Bottle with .05 size tip
Pin that will fit into the Jac tip

Optional: Silk stain


Step one: use watercolors to paint the background. I like to swirl and blend my colors.

Step two: fill the jac bottle with the rubber cement.

Step three: use the rubber cement to draw henna designs ( or whatever) on the paper. Rubber cement is a harsh chemical only use it in a well ventilated area. Keep it away from children and meth-heads!

Step four: once the design drys use watercolor to paint a solid color over the entire piece of paper. Darker contrasting colors work better. If you would like a very dark shiny surface try silk paints. ( I used silk paints in the pictures below.)

Step 5: once the top coat is dry use the tortillion or eraser to remove the rubber cement.

Step 6: marvel at the amazing art you created then take pictures and show me at so I can see and compliment your artistic skill.
