Ink resist art techinque involves the use of permanent black ink, tempera paint, watercolor paint, gouache paint or acrylic paint.  At this stage after the watercolor goes through the wash and is completely dried, watercolor, gouache and or acrylic can be painted on.  I use watercolor and start to paint around the permanent ink lines left behind by the water bath.  Basic gradated wash is used with more emphesis on the color than the value.  Layes of watercolor is being applied one after the other when the previous layer is dry.
