Wax Paper Resist Technique

Lately I see more and more pictures popping up of an older technique called Wax Paper Resist. I will tell you more about that technique later. Well, in most of the pictures I have seen the wax paper is just crumbled together. Which makes an awesome looking background after you are done, but I was thinking why not use our embossing folders. First I was a little skeptical but after I did my very first one I was hooked. I just kept on getting all the different embossing folders and I was amazed about the results. I could have went on, but I had to quit at some point. 

For this one I used the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder and colored it with Mango Melody. 


This one is called Tin Tile and one of the new in-colors Magenta Madness. 

Another one for the men in our life. I used the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder and the in-color Cinnamon Cider. 

And last but not least the Lace 3D with another in-color Just Jade. 

This technique is so much fun. I could have went on for hours, but like I said already I had to come to an end eventually.

 More about the technique. You will need wax paper, paper (copy paper will do), glossy paper, iron, embossing folder, brayer or blending tool and the color of your choice. Take a piece of wax paper and emboss it with the embossing folder of your choice. Then on an iron safe surface (I just used my ironing board) start the sandwich with a couple pieces of paper, put down the embossed wax paper, a piece of Glossy paper face done, a couple more pieces of paper to finish the sandwich. Use your iron (without steam, on the highest setting) and iron over the sandwich for a few seconds.  After everything is cooled off, ink up your brayer and keep on rolling it over the glossy paper with the imprint up. How much color you want to add is up to you.
