easy peeled paint look
Here's an oldie but goodie technique that I wanted to share with you again!  It's easy to create a faux peeled paint look using Ranger's Perfect Medium (or the Watermark Resist Pad) and Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paints.
Here I am painting a Maya Road chipboard house with Claudine Hellmuth Studio Modern Red before starting the resist. You could do this on any non-porous surface, painted papers, painted cigarbox, chipboard, painted canvas etc. In order for the technique to work you'll need to paint your surface first either with color acrylic paint or Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi-Medium, or Gesso so that way you start with a sealed surface.Using the corner of the Perfect Medium Pad, (or use the Ranger watermark resist pad) wipe over the house shape in a few places to create a streaky look. You could also stamp an image with the pad to make a resist image!

It should look like this. With a few streaks of resist ink around the house shape. Make sure not to put it everywhere and DO NOT dry it at this step!!

Quickly paint over the entire house shape using watered down paint. I like to make the paint the consistency of heavy cream. Do not dry the resist or allow it to sit for a long time before painting over or it wont work. Here I used Claudine Hellmuth Studio in Painterly Pink You will notice that the paint resists and makes a peeled paint look.

It's an easy and quick way to create an aged effect!

I didn't know perfect medium could be used as a resist that way - glad you shared, since it's a new-to-me technique.
