Creating a Watercolor Resist with China Marker

Creating a Watercolor Resist with China Marker


Welcome to The Shelley Studio Today
I’m doing a watercolor resist I haven’t done one in quite a while and I
was watching somebody on YouTube and they mentioned that a China marker
works as a recess because it’s got a crayon like consistency I’m like oh man I
gotta try this out I’m doing this on rice paper because I have a
whole pack of rice paper I’ve only used a few pieces of it and so
I’m like this could be fun just to explore I just filling this up with some
doodles and then add some color and it’s probably kind of hard for you to see so
I don’t film the entire drawing of it just because it’s white on white and
yeah I can barely see it as I’m drawing it okay so there it is
and we’re gonna just spritz some water on the rice paper it just kind of
gets all limp and stuff so you can see it pretty good right there and I’m just
gonna add some color and have fun and I hope you enjoy watching the right side of that it’s gotten a
little too dried out so we’re gonna spritz that it with some water and you
can paint on this dry I was just having fun
letting the colors blend as I add them to the rice paper had to add a pop of color so
we’re going with some yellow and I like how it stands out Sorry it’s a little bit
blurry here you notice how bright and flat the colors were so we’re going to
distress it yeah so I crumpled it up in a ball and adding water and then I’m
going to spritz is with chalkboard paint I think the spray from tattered angels and we’re just gonna dip it in I’m
testing it on a piece of rice paper I just wanted to see what I would
look like decided I need to add some more water cuz I don’t I don’t want it
all turn black I just want a little grunge to it so here we go
we’re gonna be brave let’s do it okay
and then I get brave in the end and just wipe it up like a paper towel it’s a
done deed now whatever happens happens let’s just soak it all up there we go
wiping the whole counter off really sorry it’s blurry but that China
marker really crumbled when I did that was crumbly anyway but it’s flaked all
over the picture most of it comes off when it’s dry that’s me trying to wipe
it off it’s not coming but you’ll see it in the close-ups you’ll still see some
of that crumbly mess it looks a little distressed it
looks a little bit more interesting I think. I’ve got a few close-ups for you I
hope you liked that I hope you give it a try if you did like it please give me a
