Default Resist technique

Okay - this is probably a really dumb question - but I won't find out if I don't ask

Are all the resist techniques done on glossy cardstock?

TIA - Sharon

I have always done it on glossy myself, but I know my sister Kim (mamakimberly) has done it on regular and it looks great too.

I almost never do mine on glossy card stock. Because I never have it.

I would love for you to provide tips for doing resist techniques on cardstock.

I've tried embossing, crayon, wax, and rubber cement. The resist part works but when I try to color with daubering my hand falls off and when I brayer I get very ugly results (overlapping causes darker areas, it just doesn't blend as nice as on glossy).

Also, when I do just versamark resist (non-embossed), and then color, you can't even tell the difference between the versa and non-versa areas.

I would love to hear how you are doing these techs on cardstock!

alright, alright, I do tend to exaggerate ...but it does feel like it would...but that is only when I am daubering on cardstock...it just takes so long.

I would really love to hear how you do these techniques on cardstock -- do you use pigment or dye ink, brayer or dauber or sponge or ?...I just am not getting good results unless I use glossy.

Thanks!

Karen, I use the sponges, not the daubers, when I do this. The daubers are just too small! The sponges give a nice soft look with the cardstock.

Here's one:

I use my stipple brush a lot when I am doing any of the resist techniques. It works really well, doesn't go on too dark and doesn't kill my hand!

I like doing resist with the polished stone technique. I get faster color coverage that way.

I use glossy and clear emboss my image over versamark and then do polished stone. If you don't want it white, you can always sponge a light color first then clear emboss with versa, then do your coloring.

Maybe this will light a fire under my bum to do one so I can post it!

I much prefer glossy over US for the crayon resist technique. Glossy cs ROCKS!! If you've never tried it, you must!!
