Default Vaseline Techniques

Who would have thought we stampers would be using Vaseline in our art? Well, it works to make a wonderful resist.

Vaseline Resist Technique
You will need:
Vaseline
something to rub the vaseline on (wax paper works)
regular cardstock
watercolors or watery-ink
paint brush
stamp of your choice

Rub Vaseline on wax paper.
Stamp into the Vaseline, then stamp on cardstock.
Prepare your ink (either by spritzing watercolor with water, or watering down some reinkers, or smooshing the inkpad cover down into the ink to make a palette on the cover).
Paint over the Vaseline with the watery-ink. (This step smears the Vaseline which continues to "resist" the ink to varying degrees. Notice the background in these samples.)
If desired, stamp with StazOn.

Have fun. Let's see what you create.

Gesso Wash Technique
(This is a cross filing. You will also find these instructions in the Gesso Techniques file.
Can you tell I was a secretary?)

Found this fascinating technique at quietfiredesign.com by Wanda H. http://www.quietfiredesign.com/Galle...zWanda.htm#top

Add color to your cardstock any way you want (watercolor, reinkers, alcohol inks, etc.). (Or skip this step and stamp directly on scrapbook paper.)
Stamp image with archival ink on prepared background.
Rub Vaseline over the stamped image.
Prepare a mixture of Gesso-Water in a spray bottle and spray over ATC.
When Gesso Wash is dry, wipe the Vaseline off. The Vaseline acts as a resist to protect the original background from the Gesso Wash.

Left: Horse: OnyxXpressions. Cardstock prepared with Distress Ink background on regular cardstock.
Right: Lady: Hampton Arts. Cardstock prepared with alcohol inks on glossy cardstock.

Someone on another forum some time back said that if you apply Vaseline to both sides of stamped paper (not cardstock) it will end up becoming somewhat transparent, kind of like velum. Never got around to trying it but wanted to pass along in case someone else wanted to try it.

Great idea, Stacy, and a good addition to this thread.
BTW, I have heard of a similar technique, Faux Vellum, but you use baby oil on regular white paper. I haven't tried either idea.

This fantastic ATC is from Wolfeyesone. She features the Vaseline Technique and Gesso Wash. I love what she does with these techniques.

Thumbs up another ressurrection...

Great info & I'm one of those who did faux vellum (aka--greased paper).

Here's an early ('07) example of it. I rubbed petroleum jelly onto both sides of cheap copy paper. Used a hair-dryer to melt the jelly & wiped off any excess with paper napkins. You can use an embossing gun, but the hair dryer is hot enough.

Either way you want to stamp (& color) before you vellumize the paper.

Here's another project using the faux vellum. I colored the butterfly (copy paper) with crayons before wiping with jelly & heat-setting. The frame is colored paper that I stamped & jelly-ed.

The center part was made by putting wool roving on the copier face & printing in color (think I used blue).

You're welcome, Deb. And TY to you for sharing the resist technique--lovely examples! BTW... One thing I found helpful when stamping 'vaseline' with detailed images? Once you stamp apply powder (talcum or cornstarch) to both sides of the stamping. It will absorb excess vaseline & help to keep the image from blurring.

Another tip... Over time you may find faux vellum can become a bit brittle. It doesn't happen overnight, but worth knowing if you want your project to last 'forever'.
