I went to the book store a couple of days ago to pick up some new Somerset magazines. One that I grabbed was Somerset Apprentice. There's some wonderful projects in there with great instructions. I am intrigued with Gesso & I found a project by Michelle Ward ( http://michelleward.typepad.com/) called Gesso Resist. The procedure is to apply gesso to a rubberstamp & stamp on unprepped paper (I used watercolor.) You let the gesso dry for at least one hour. Apply acrylic paint over that & spritz with water while still wet. You need to move fairly fast. Once you've spritzed with water, buff away with an old cloth......and this is what you get. I even purchased some black Gesso to give that a whirl also. Have a great day everyone!
