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.

Supplies:

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

Optional: Silk stain

Method.

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 www.facebook.com/kchennasupply so I can see and compliment your artistic skill.
