Here is another resist I was experimenting with yesterday. It is wax crayon on newspaper.
Using a reference photo I drew a zebra directly on newspaper using the stock pages.
It was hard to see so I added some lines in fine sharpie.
You then take a white crayon and color in where ever you want it to stay white.
Using black tempera I then painted over the crayon. With newspaper you don't want to over saturate it with water/paint as it will just tear on you.
I added some darker areas using a small brush with a black acrylic or you could use ink just to have some more contrast in the details.
