How to Create Wax Paper Resist

Technique Junkies, Sunflowers and Dragonflies, Wax Paper Resist 1 A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.  Hello folks, today I’m here with one of the very first techniques that Pat filmed and put into her October 2002 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter.  I decided to use the finished product in an usual way–rather than stamp out an image on the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 finished product, I cut mine up to create water for this lovely mermaid that comes from Technique Junkies By the Sea, set of 6.  My sentiment comes from this set as well.  I find this set so versatile.  So let’s visit my tutorial shall we…

Scrunch up your wax paper well.

Lay your first piece of copier paper on your ironing board.  Next, place your glossy paper face up and then open up your wax paper and lay on top of your glossy paper.

Take your second piece of glossy paper and lay the glossy side face down.  You will now have your glossy paper sandwiched between the wax paper.

Thank you for the tutorial. The colors are so pretty and this seems to be such an easy technique. The hard part for me is always brayering. (I know, I know, Beth I am a chicken when it comes to the brayer 🙂
