Technique – how to do ‘gouache resist’.

STEP 1:

Draw your picture onto stretched heavy weight paper and paint out all the non black line bits with white gouache. I like Winsor and Newton’s Zinc White!

 

STEP 2:

Paint over the WHOLE picture with black Indian Ink!

 

 

STEP 3:

Wash the whole lot down – be careful though because you don’t want to mess up your paper!

 

STEP4:

The image appears!

 

STEP 5:

Wait for the paper to dry and add colour.

 

STEP 6:

All done!
