Masking Fluid/Liquid Frisket: Everything You Need To Know

This tutorial explains the use of frisket, a liquid wax that is used in watercolor painting to create precise lines and shapes. Diane Bradley, an award-winning watercolorist, explains how frisket was originally made from white wax but the problem with that was the wax was not easily removed from the paper. Liquid frisket was then invented and is now widely available. Diane demonstrates how to use frisket with a dedicated old brush and shows how to fill the brush with the frisket using a spout. The frisket takes about 2 hours to dry, and once it's dry, it can be removed with a frisket remover. Diane compares frisket to painter's tape, explaining that it takes time to put it on and remove it, but it gives you a clean edge. The video highlights the process of using frisket and how it can be a tedious task but the end result is worth it.
