Hi, it’s Tessa from How To Make Art, and today I’d like to show you a fun technique using oil pastels as a resist with watercolors in your art journal. This is what the finished page will look like:
Here is what you will need:
*Niji Watercolor Set
*Niji Oil Pastels
*Niji Permawriter, .07
*Glue or Gluestick
STEP ONE: Create a simple drawing in your art journal with some of the oil pastels. I chose to make a pattern with the white oil pastel. You can barely see it in this photo, but here it is!
STEP TWO: Mix up your favorite colors of paint by adding some water to a dab of one of the watercolors from the set.
STEP THREE: Using your paintbrush, paint over the areas where you made your pastel drawings. I love the beautiful effect that the oil pastel resist creates!
STEP FOUR: Add a word like “adventure” to your page using your Permawriter and a piece of scrap paper, then glue it on!
Thanks so much for creating with me today! 🙂
