Inkadinks and Wax Technique

Good Morning Crafters

Well we hope you all had a lovely Christmas.

Today we are sharing a YouTube from Samantha K showing a technique using inkadinks and wax.

First of all here is a picture of her creation and a brief description as described by Samantha.

Clematis Decoupage Stamp Set

I was feeling very summery when i made this, plus the Inkadinks are very spring/summer colours that I used 

I have used the Inkadinks as a watercolour paint to very roughly paint the flower and leaves, I purposely didn't stay in the lines, as the whole effect is meant to look quite artsy and bleed into each other. The idea is also to demonstrate a way of colouring the stamped images without having to be a great painter or great with markers. 

I then dried everything off, added wax over the coloured areas, again not being to fussy and then used a different colour wash all over, dabbing any excess ink of the wax areas that had acted like a resist. 

The effect left is one where the over colour has in places seeped into the initial colour, leaving a gorgeous colour blend, that some people may find difficult to do if they were just using paint on paint as everything can just become a little muddy. 

Enjoy the rest of the festive season!
