Playing with rubber cement resist

I think I found this technique on Pinterest.  

I poured rubber cement in a bottle with a spout made for writing.  I took out some watercolor paper and cardstock, and began to scribble.

After that dried, the real fun began.  I used watercolor crayons, a bit of Gelatos and sprays (from ArtAnthologie & Prima) and water.  
I hastened the dry time with my heat gun.  When all dry, it took just a finger rub to remove the glue.  Note: the underlay is very white in real life.
Love the batik look you get.

  1. Watercoloring is one of my favorite techniques. I've not tried rubber cement, but may have to give it a go since you suggested it. A great technique for your class that I hope is extremely successful.


I really appreciate each and every comment.
