Over on the PaperArtsy blog at the moment , the topic is Masks.
Being a bit stupid, I first thought of the Masquerade variety, but having watched Darcy's wonderful intro, I now know better!
I have used masking fluid once, to mask off the drawing of a hen that I did, but tonight I wanted to draw a seedhead.
This is how it goes........
1. Seedhead drawn with a fine brush dipped into masking fluid and then, when dry, infusions added.
Looks clumsy and I had to Google how to clean my brush as it was a mess. Not to be repeated! Tip was to coat the brush in washing up liquid first to avoid coating with rubber.
2. Seedhead drawn with a dropper that is left over from expensive eye serum...well a girl has to have these things!
Still clumsy but slightly better and the fluid just washed straight off the dropper.
3. Seedhead drawn by dipping a wooden skewer into the masking fluid. I like this one!
Some of you experienced artists out there might be thinking....what is she on about. But for me it was a valid experiment. Hope that it is useful to a few others too! I will develop my findings!
