In gouache resist technique, the image is painted in gouache onto paper. When dry, the entire work is painted over with india ink, then when thoroughly dried, washed off with water. The gouache color remains but the ink that covered it is mostly washed off. The ink adheres to any unpainted part of the paper in its original color and some small remnants of ink remain on the paint itself. The overall result has a print-like quality and the heightened color intensity due to the ink that remains after most of it is washed off.
In the workshop, we'll explore the basic methods for application of these materials and some ways to make your work more exciting by thinking of how gouache resist works from a design/art standpoint.
