F&W Acrylic Artists' Ink
Daler-Rowney Pearlescent Liquid Acrylic Ink
Paper Lace doily - make sure it's one with an open weave to let lots of color through
1. Place the paper doily on
top of the sketch paper.
2. Using a soft brush, paint acrylic paints over the doily. If you use a gentle hand, you can reuse the doily several times. It will actually get a bit sturdier as layers of acrylic paint are added to it. Let your print dry. You can use the paper as is, or continue to the next step to overdye it.
3. The picture on the left was overdyed with gold F&W ink. The one on the right was done using Pearlescent pink. I poured a little bit of ink onto a palette and brushed it over the printed paper. You can thin the inks with water for more subtle colors.
4. Let dry.
