Wax Paper Resist

Hi! I demonstrated the Wax Paper Resist Technique at the Share What You Love Demonstrator event, and I wanted to share some samples with you that I created for "show n tell". Today I will show you the original Wax Paper Resist Technique, prior to our Big Shot days. Later this week, I will show you more samples how to do this technique with your Big Shot! It is so cool!!!

Here are some simple instructions on how to do this technique. You have to try it!!
  1. Take a small piece of wax paper and "crumple" it up into a ball.
  2. Flatten it out.
  3. Take a piece of GLOSSY cardstock and "sandwich" the flattened "textured" wax paper in between 2 pieces of GLOSSY cardstock, so that the glossy side is touching the wax paper.
  4. Get ready to iron!! Settings on iron need to be high heat, dry heat. No steam.
  5. Lay a piece of copy paper on your ironing surface to protect your surface. Lay the glossy cardstock/wax paper "sandwich" on the copy paper and top it off with another piece of copy paper to protect your iron.
  6. Iron "sandwich" for 10-15 seconds.
  7. Take the glossy cardstock and you are ready to add some color. I used my Sponge Daubers to add some color with my ink pads. You can also use a rubber brayer or sponge.
  8. The wax resists the ink and you have created a unique background!!
