Wax Resist with a Common Household Product

Waxed paper can be cut into shapes, placed onto plain or painted-but-dry paper, and pressed with a clothes iron. Use a pressing sheet that you don't mind getting melted wax on.
Then paint over the paper again after the wax has cooled. Easy-peasy! In the example above, the upper right butterfly is actually the waxed paper, and the lower butterfly is the wax resisted one.
