VIDEO: How To Do The Watermark Resist Technique With Acrylic Paint or Ink


So you know how I like resist techniques right? I have been doing a few in different videos on my channel and I have another one for you today. This is the watermark resist using an embossing or watermark ink. You have probably seen the technique being done incoordination with other inks and watercolours right? Well I’m using an acrylics with my watermark resist today and showing you how you can get the look too.

This is a fun, magical technique which works well for art journaling, mixed media projects, card making alike so I hope that you have fun with it. I’m going to do mine as a basis of a floral illustration so watch that develop too in my video! The close up of the project and supplies are all below the video.
