Raise your hand if you agree that baby wipes are a must have in your craft arsenal! They are great for quick clean-ups of your hands, craft mat, stamps, etc. while working on a project. But did you realize how awesome they can be in the actual creation of art?
Today we are going to share some ways to utilize these handy wipes in your creations.
You can paint with baby wipes! Using a baby wipe makes it super easy to cover a large area with minimal paint which makes for quicker dry times and easier to layer and build your mixed media page. It is also a great technique to add in spots of other colors that blend wonderfully into the background color.
Here are a couple of stills from this Dyan Reaveley YouTube Video showing the technique.
You can also use baby wipes to “reverse paint” or remove paint. This is a great technique to do through a stencil as you can see below. You can see the whole tutorial here.

What do you get when you added embossing ink/powder, distress crayons and baby wipes together? Pure magic, as Sandy Allnock shares in this video.
