 Huh
Hello!  I have made the coolest cards/stationary by mixing oil paint colours with linseed oil, putting drops of that mixture into water and putting the card/stationary on top of the water. . .
HOWEVER . . .    when the cards/stationary dried, I noticed a lot of yellow oil spots.
Does anyone know what else I can mix with the oil paints, so this doesn't happen again?

The colour needs to float on the water in order to transfer on the paper.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

I am assuming that you were using the linseed oil to dilute the oil paint?  I would try using liquin.  But it could just be the oil in the oil paint the is being absorbed by the paper in the drying process?  You could work on smaller pieces of cardstock that are primed with an acrylic paint.....do your water and oil paint effect on that and then double stick tape it to the front of the card?

(You wouldn't have to use gesso to prime the paper....you could use a color of acrylic paint that would complement or even contrast the actually card.)

GOOD LUCK...post pics!
