Default Vaseline Resist Technique

Just heard about this and did a search in the tutorials but nothing came up. I did not look through the entire list cause there are so many. So I am just hoping someone knows if it is on there and can direct me to find it easily.

Thanks
Shirl

Vic, I took a look at that site regarding the Petroleum resist. Why bother with the mess of the petroleum? I make my own gift wrap and lay leaves or other items on the paper and attach them with low stick tape if needed. Then spray or sponge on paint. What am I missing with the petroleum?

Well, the original question was about the technique and I remembered that I had seen it on Ink Stains.

I think it looks fascinating! I'm bookmarking it to try on my next day off when I have time to play properly - and tidy up.

Billie Anne - from reading it, it looks as if you still get some paint beading up on the Vaseline, it's a partial resist and not a total mask like you're describing. A lot messier, for sure, though.

Thanks, Sabrina. Yes the paint beads up on the vaseline but if it's on the vaseline you will wipe it off anyway. I can do partial coverage with a sponge. Just thought the vaseline did something to the paper besides resist the paint. Thanks again for the reply.

I'm going to try it tomorrow, but I have a feeling that the layer of Vaseline must be so thin that you don't actually wipe it off. I think it must be just enough to make the treated parts "oily" enough to act as a resist. I'll post back tomorrow after I've tried it out!

Sabrina, I looked at the link that Vic posted and step 2 says "Take a dollop of the PJ and spread it across the die-cut working it out over the edges a bit. Don't be shy about using lots of PJ...the more you use the better your resist will turn out." So that doesn't sound like a thin layer. That said I googled vaseline resist and saw a video where a woman smeared a thin layer of vaseline on fun foam and used it like a stamp pad for a rubber stamp. She stamped her cardstock with the vaseline and then used a sponge to apply paint. She said you didn't need to remove the vaseline because it was gone by the time you were finished. I'm assuming that the sponges she used for applying the paint is picking up the vaseline. Waiting to see what you come up with.

I've done stage one and it's drying overnight. I realised there was a part 2 to Roni's tutorial, and you do wipe the vaseline off after the paint has had plenty of time to get dry.
I'd say for sure that you get little flecks of colour, almost like stippling, on the parts of card that were coated with the Vaseline. I wiped a little corner clear without waiting till tomorrow .
It sure was messy!!
What you found by googling sounds to me as if you'd get pretty much the same effect with Versamark - it sounds like ghosting.

Finished result.
I had fun, I'd do it again.
I'd use more Vaseline next time!
