Sharpie Drawing on Dry Wax Paper

Sharpie Drawing on Dry Wax PaperI’m still having fun playing around with old family photos, permanent markers, and dry wax paper. I found my dry wax paper at Smart and Final, and it cost about $5 for 500 10" square sheets. Cheap stuff, and it is SO fun to color on as the marker just kind of glides on and looks like watercolor, but can be controlled more than any paint could ever be.
1. I printed my photo and taped a piece of dry wax paper on top. This photo had enough contrast that I could see the image directly to trace it in pencil. I’ve also used carbon paper if it’s a little hard to make out the photo.
2. Take a fine tip black permanent to trace the pencil lines, and then more permanent markers to fill in the open areas.
