This paper LOOKS like Acetate but is SO MUCH BETTER!!
You can use markers or watercolors or pens... it all dries on the Wet Dura-Lar!! HOW COOL IS THAT?!
The Rep showed us what you can do with overlays... in the pictures below, look how he used 2 pieces of Wet Dura-Lar to add color or add shadow... and when the pieces are overlaid they create a stunning flower bouquet!!
(There is a piece of plain, white paper placed behind the Wet Dura-Lar so you can see the vibrant colors)
He watercolored a quick country side, THEN he used one piece of Wet Dura-Lar to add richer colors and the other piece of Wet Dura-Lar to add the lines
Matte Dura-Lar is a synthetic paper that is SO SMOOTH!!!! It LOOKS like vellum.. but is SO MUCH BETTER!!
The Rep drew a picture of his daughter.. the colored pencils he used just glide across the surface!!
I love how you can really create beautful shadow effects.. You can color on the back AND front of the Matte Dura-Lar so you can create light and dark tones of the same colors!! (Like the Purple that you see below, notice how the colors are muted)
-Use a pencil (or graphite) to scribble on the backside of a piece of Matte Dura-Lar
-Place a piece of white paper or white card stock down on your desk and overlay the piece of Matte Dura-Lar onto the paper GRAPHITE SIDE DOWN
-Use a pen to draw your image, making sure that the graphite/pencil scribble is underneath your design so that the image will fully transfer
-Remove the Matte Dura-Lar and see your image transferred onto your paper!!
See you soon!!
