Rubber Cement Resist

by Beate Johns

Use rubber cement to create crazy resist patterns.


  • White Glossy Cardstock
  • Rubber Cement
  • Brayer (I used a foam attachment)
  • Dye ink


  1. Step 1

    Drizzle Rubber Cement over your White Glossy Cardstock in any pattern you want.

    Make sure the rubber cement is completely dry before moving on to the next step.

  2. Step 2

    Brayer your darkest Dye Ink over your cardstock.

  3. Step 3

    Remove rubber cement using either your fingers or an adhesive remover.

  4. Step 4 (Optional)

    Brayer your second color over the cardstock.

  5. Step 4 (Optional)

    Brayer your second color over the cardstock.

  6. Step 5

    Finish your card.


    Single Color Background
    For a one-color backround, stop after Step 3. You're done!

    Dual Color Background
    For a two-color background, rub off all the rubber cement prior to Step 4. If you would like to have two colors and some spots still white, leave a portion of the rubber cement in place until your background is complete.

    Brush It
    Instead of drizzling the rubber cement randomly around your cardstock, try using a brush to create a more deliberate pattern.
