TWO SIMPLE TECHNIQUES!
The first method uses plastic shapes cut from shopping bags. I made boulder-like forms by wetting watercolor paper, placing the plastic shapes firmly down on the damp paper, and painting washes around them.
Let dry before removing the plastic. Then develop the painting further. See mine below.

Fold waxed paper, open it up again, and lay it into a wet wash of vivid ink or fluid paint. Press it down with a sheet of glass on top. Let dry before removing the glass and the waxed paper.

achieve the effect you want!
