10 Crayon Resist Techniques You Need to Try


From traditional beeswax to Crayola crayons, let’s explore crayon resist techniques using simple tools to transform ordinary papers into brilliant collages elements.

Tune in Tuesday is back! I am so happy to be back with you on my Tune in Tuesday series demonstrating endless ways to create fun and unique collage papers! In this video I am sharing 10 different ways to create crayon resist collage papers. Whether you’re using stencils, embossing packets, or found household items, the possibilities for texture and dimension are endless.

Not only do I love exploring different techniques and tools, but I also love seeing how different papers interact with the the resist technique. Sometimes I use this technique over collage papers that are in my throwaway pile, bringing a whole new life to them. This is such a juicy technique that is so user-friendly for new artists, crafters, or seasoned artists – all you have to do is jump in and start playing!

As I do in most of my work, I continue to believe that sticking with a basic color palette using only 3 primary colors plus black and white allows my art to hold cohesiveness throughout my projects. The end result is a series of collages that compliment each other beautifully. For me, creating these papers is not just putting a design on a page, but it’s also the magic of mixing my color palette and creating textures on collage papers that evoke emotion.

What are your favorite techniques from this videos?! I’d love for you to share with me in the comments or tag me @catrains.artist
