Hello,

I had a go too!  I only had copydex glue to hand, but I think it worked pretty well for a first attempt.  I used a picture of a Montagu's harrier.



weighanchor - thanks for sharing this great tutorial!

OK, I KNOW that I need to find a course in watercolor, but I tried this anyway, and
For fun I did these, with one I masked the dark lines and the others I masked the white areas:







I KNOW that they are pedestrian compared to the real artists around here, but I thought this was really fun to do...

So much so that I've tried and tried on the same subject...


and the first try resulted in a truly scary Tooth version (anybody know how to ameliorate the Teeth in this one? I am a raw beginner- I know nothing)

 
then various versions, each time trying something a little different:








Would any of these be good enough to give as a birthday gift to my son (this is my dear daughter -in-law)?

I think the last one with the light blue is the best rendering of her.  But good job on all of your efforts, practice makes perfect!  Smiley

I second the poster above...I like the last one (light blue) best, but I also like the one right before that a lot, too.  I also like your puppy ones.  Honestly, I think that watercolors are super-difficult to work with (but I would love to try this technique), so you should give yourself lots of credit.  They look awesome, they all have personality, and you did a good job.

This is totally awesome! I usually stay away from watercolor because I believe I'm terribly bad when it comes to working with it... But I'm definitely going to have to give it another try with this technique! I love what you made, and thank you for introducing me to this masking fluid I had never heard of before.

Awesome! I love using tape for reserving areas when painting with acrylics. I love doing watercolours and I can't wait to try out this masking fluid stuff, it seems like liquid heaven!
