|Drizzled rubber cement resist |
and acrylic paints, collage - hhc
When you think of "resist" do you think of avoiding caloric desserts? For this exchange, participants may use various methods of resisting/blocking ink, paint, etc. in their overall designs.
|Acrylic paints over frayed jute - hhc|
Some materials that create resist/contrast in your post card design might include:
wax crayon drawing (or melted wax?)
drizzled or scraped rubber cement
frayed jute fiber (one of my favorites!)
temporary paper cut-out's (masks)
and what about stencils?

Over the above resists you might spray ink, or spray/brush acrylics or watercolors, for example.
