Cover the surface you are working on; this is a messy project! Tape the backs of your cards to the work surface.
Using painter's tape, mask off the edges of each postcard. I left about a 1/2" border on all sides.
Cover the entire postcard with crayon. This is an important step. You can either use one color of crayon or multiple colors. I recommend using a few colors.
Mix the paint and detergent together using a 1:1 ratio. Pour into a shallow bowl. I like to use recycled meat trays for this. If you are using India ink, pour it directly into a bowl/tray.
Using your roller brush, cover the entire card with the paint-detergent mixture. Let dry.
Repeat with additional coats as necessary until the entire surface is covered. Let dry completely.
Peel the tape off the cards carefully so as not to rip the card stock. When the cards are finished, scratch them using toothpicks, chopsticks, forks, etc. to make drawings.
