Crayon Resist Sketch


I have a new addiction and it's the fabulous Paper Crafter Crayons! These crayons are so highly pigmented and so strong that I love that I can press as hard as I want and it does not break inside the barrel! 

One of my favorite techniques is using the crayons as a resist medium which is what I did here.


I used painter's tape to mask off a random pattern on a canvas and then used the Paper Crafter Crayons to color in the section of the canvas and pulled off the tape to reveal this cool pattern.  I then created a little mist using the Gelatos® Double Scoop® Color - Metallic Mint to fill in the parts without the crayon and voila!

To finish off the canvas I used a Pastel pencil to sketch the face.
