Masking with Magicals

 Hi there,

I love it when I stumble across a new product in my local art supply store.

Last week I discovered this wonderful product … Schmincke Masking fluid/drawing gum and decided to give it a go
on watercolor paper with this months color set.

Have you used a masking fluid before? It’s a great product for covering a specific 

area which should remain white when you want to add a color to your project.

Please excuse my messy desk 🙂


So for this page, I used some 300gsm water colour paper, used black archival ink to 

stamp some images and then used the Masking fluid to 

color in the areas that I wanted to stay white.

Once it was completely dry – allowing it to air dry will give you the best results –
I then did the fun bit – adding the colour.

I started by tapping on Tiffanylou’s Blue Magicals with a fan
brush and then gave it a spray with water.

While it was wet, I lightly misted on some Bells of Ireland Green and then used

my paintbrush to spread it out – I love that watercolor paper allows the color

to sit on top of the paper – giving it more time for movement.

I then added some Pineapple Paradise by dipping my brush into the

bottle and dab it on to add some highlights.

Once it was completely dry, I used a rubber to very gently rub off the Masking fluid –

this reveals a white area left behind.

Absolutely LOVE this result – the little pops of white in the stamping
makes it jump right out of the page!

 The Imaginarium Design chipboard I swiped with Bells of Ireland Green

and Tiffanylou’s Blue Magicals – loving that shimmer ….

So there you have it – another super easy & fun technique using

Sprays & Magicals that you can easily create at home

Have a great day
