Step 6: Painting On Top Of Masking Fluid


When you’ve finished the previous easy watercolor practice, go back to the top left corner of your paper, where the masking fluid is now dry. Use the cat’s tongue brush and the wet-on-wet technique again to paint a large square on top of the masking fluid. Drop in different colors to experiment, such as Winsor Red, Violet, and Indian Red, and observe how the paint spreads and blends as you go. You can also play with gravity by tilting your paper, laying it flat only when you’re satisfied with the pattern that’s been created.

Once you’re done, leave the paint to dry completely before removing the masking fluid, as paper is very delicate when it’s wet.
