Rubberstamping 101: Wax Resist Background

Wax Resist Background

~Wax paper
~Glossy cardstock
~Stipple brush/sponge/brayer
~Dye ink pad

1. Crumble a piece of wax paper and straighten it out but leave lots of wrinkles
2. Sandwich wax paper between two sheets of glossy paper
3. Iron (no steam) the waxed paper "sandwich."
4. If you hold the paper up to the light, you can see the wax left on the surface. If not enough, repeat ironing.
5. Stipple, sponge, or brayer color on card

Note: You must use dye ink as pigment will not dry on glossy paper.

That's it...good luck!!
