After playing around with the Spray Starch Background Technique I got to wondering what else I could use the starch for …like you do.
So decided to have a little dabble.
I made a couple of resist type backgrounds using the spray starch as a resist medium, I had some plastic netting which I used to make a stencil screen to spray the starch through on glossy card.
Next I heat set the starch using the heat gun and then used a brayer to roll over the top of the card with a rainbow dye inkpad. As you can see from the results below, the spray starch does a good job as a resisting medium 🙂
The sample below was created using the aerosol varity of Spray Starch (Dylon brand)
This sample was created using Wiz Spray Starch which is a non aerosol brand 0f liquid starch in a trigger action spray bottle.
I like the resist better with this background as it seems to be a lot stronger and textured:
