Peeled Paint



Supplies Needed:
   Acrylic Paint
   Vaseline
   Cardstock
   Adhesive
   Collage Images

Directions:
1.  Paint cardstock with acrylic paint and let dry.  This will be the background layer that shows through.
2.  Attach collage images.
3.  Glob the vaseline over the parts of your image and background that you want to show through.
4.  Apply a second color of acrylic paint over the whole piece.  Where the vaseline is, it will resist the paint.
5.  When dry, take a paper towel and remove the paint from the vaselined areas.
6.  Optional: As a last step you can rub a baby wipe over the vaselined areas to make sure you've gotten it all off, but I don't find this step necessary.
