Rub and Buff Technique

This exercise was to create our background and texture with gesso first, then paint watercolor layers on top. The next step was to rub and buff with a damp cloth to make the texture in the gesso more apparent. Then I finished it by rubbing some oil pastels around the edge with my finger and then some white acrylic ink for highlights. These are really fun to do. I am thinking of making a series of greeting cards with this technique.
