Demonstration by Alison Down

10th April

‘The Wash-Off Technique’ (gouache & waterproof ink)

Previous Next

A very interesting afternoon on 10th April when member Alison Down showed us ‘the wash-off technique’ - basically using white gouache as a resist for drawings done with Indian ink - though no reason why other media shouldn’t be used for the drawing provided they are insoluble and won’t wash off with the gouache!

The photos (by Pam Gilbert and Ian Philpot) show Alison and the ‘washing-off’ stage, as well as some of the cards she has produced by this method.

Many thanks, Alison, for a very interesting and enjoyable session.
