On NGS group, we're doing a study of Darlene Olivia McElroy & Sandra Duran Wilson's book "Surface Treatment workshop" This week we're looking at the section "Rinse Aid". The authors warn that this technique is a bit tricky getting the right consistency of paint and the timing. I had mixed results.
Paint surface (I used watercolor paper) with thin acrylic paint (I mixed it with water). While it is wet, pour rinse aid down the surface and let it dry.
Here's my result:
The author's also suggest applying the rinse aid with foam stamps. Painted blue acrylic paint on watercolor paper and let dry. Coated with thinned green acrylic paint and while it was wet, stamped on rinse aid with a leaf shaped foam stamp.
After the paint dried, used paper towel to remove the rinse aid. The stamp did remove some of the green paint, but the shapes are blurry.
pulled paper backgrounds I made earlier.
I like this one!
Another way the authors suggest to use the rinse aid is to make a background with various colors and layers of paint, then do the rinse aid technique. I painted different acrylic paints on to canvas paper and let it dry.
Covered with a thin layer of black acrylic paint, while wet poured rinse aid down the surface.
Here's the result:
