Thumbs up MIX210 Glue Stick Resist

Challenge Title: Resistance is Futile - or IS IT?
Hostess: Understandblue (Lydia)
Keyword: MIX210

Today's challenge is to do a resist technique with an unexpected product. Actually, I've BANNED this product from my classes because it can be messy in a restaurant environment, but it's a useful product in a lot of ways - and that product is - the HUMBLE GLUE STICK.


I learned this technique in Carla Sonheim's 365 class - it's an art prompt every day for 2017 - and I love it!


What you do is apply your glue stick to watercolor paper and let it dry. You can draw with it, just make streaks, whatever you like. After it's dry - add watercolor, and then wipe it with a damp cloth to remove the color from the glue stick areas like with any other resist.


It's a very subtle resist and very fun. I'm attaching two pictures from when I first tried it. Just the resist with blue in vertical stripes. Then I did horizontal stripes on top of that, let it dry, and added pink watercolor for a subtle plaid. Then I used that as the background for an assignment to do a fast, one line drawing of elephants without lifting your pen - that was hard! My elephants are crazy. Please use a glue stick and at least one other medium.

Anyway, have fun with it and I look forward to seeing your backgrounds!!!


We hope you're having fun with these! Our goal is to make mixed media easy, approachable and FUN! We want to convince you that no matter what your style is - you can DO it!

This was SO fun to do! When I first joined SCS almost a year ago I avoided the MIX challenge like the plague as my style is really CAS - After 6 months of resisting I tried it out and now love these challenges. I will use this technique again & again:

Oops - don't know what happened - When I checked my Photo to make sure it was linked correctly, all the descriptive info just disappeared so I had to go back in & rebuild it . . . .

This was fun - a good occupation for a VERY wet and miserable day. Thanks, Lydia.

I still have the other half of the piece of card, which I used Brushos to add colour, but it didn't turn out as well on the resist end of things.

I'm CAS too - that's part of the motivation to have this challenge - you CAN have both - off to look at your card!
