Traditional oil pastel (not the water-soluble kind)
acts as a resist with watercolors, liquid acrylics,
thinned tempera or gouache.
I used good, smooth watercolor paper and applied the oil pastel heavily in the line design seen below.
|Yup, this is a simple resist demonstration!|
Then I washed in some diluted gouache.
|I added a few white accents later.|
