Using masking fluid by Artist sophie

Masking fluid isn’t something I usually use, partly due to its pong but mainly because my style of paintings don’t usually require it. As this bunny will have a background sky I have masked off the moon and stars and the bunny outline.When masking fluid dried I painted the sky, once that dried I gently used a putty rubber to remove the masking fluid. By Artist Sophie.

This watercolour painting ‘Love you to the moon and back’ by Sophie Appleton Huddlestone. Has now had the masking fluid removed and is almost complete. The masking fluid is best removed as soon as the painting is bone dry. I’ve learned with experience that leaving masking fluid on for days and days sometimes makes removing it more risky and could damage the paper.
