"Stencil-and-scrape" is what I call this technique -- it's a wet version of dry rubbings, an old technique traditionally done with soft graphite, crayons or other soft, dry media.
I create a work surface by spreading freezer paper (shiny side up) and taping it down along the edges with masking tape.
The stencil goes down first; then, over it, I place a sheet of thin paper. Here I'm using mulberry paper, thin enough to be translucent, yet strong enough to endure the scraping.
Next, I add a couple of "cousin" colors in acrylic paint --

Below are 3 dried papers that have been printed using this technique:
The middle paper above was printed on deli wrap paper; the other two were printed on mulberry paper. All of them will be cut to assorted sized for use in collage.
