Default Emboss Resist

I was just looking at this technique over at resources. Instead of using classic ink with a sponge, would the stampin' pastels work?

When I think of resist methods, I generally think of glossy cardstock that is embossed and then a "resist" agent, such as a wax or crayon blocking the absorption of inks into the paper in selected areas. Don't pastels need something to make them stick to glossy paper? I would think pastels would not penetrate and dye the paper as an would.

So the answer to your questions is no- I don't think pastels work for conventional resist techniques. But there are many techniques that involve using pastels. (Such as poppin' pastels...)

You can do emboss resist on regular cardstock by using versamark ink and clear EP, then sponge ink or rub pastels over it.

However, I think the pastels might stick a bit to the embossed part

good luck!

You don't really need glossy to do emboss resist. It will just look less vibrant on matte cardstock is all. So, yes, you could use chalks, but as Liz mentioned, you might have a little trouble rubbing the chalk completely off the embossed parts, since they can be a little sticky.

However....it's just PAPER! LOL, try it and see--playing is half the enjoyment of stamping!

Ha! You are absolutely right! However, I just got my dining room table cleared off day before yesterday and I wanted to enjoy it just a few more days before experimenting.

I am planning my Christmas cards in my head instead of on paper right now....
