Ooh, great paintings! I am still looking for a source for that medium, I found it at Joanns but it was unbelievably expensive! I might just have to cave in and order it online...

Jo Ann's has 50% off coupons about once per month... the rest of the time they have 40% off coupons usually... get on their email mailing list, and enjoy!

(The other good news is that Michael's will usually also honor JoAnn's coupons)

I don't know if anyone's said this yet but I didn't read all 24 pages.

Here's a way to save your brush from masking fluid:

get a bar of soap. just plain, dove, ivory, etc. Now wet your brush and rub it on the soap, making it foamy. Be sure to cover all of the bristles completely. DO NOT wash it off. Let it dry, then use the masking fluid! when you're done, just rinse your brush off thoroughly.

Sounds like a GOOD idea! Thanks!

I tried this yesterday with Windsor and Newton masking fluid, but when I pulled off the masking fluid it took some of the paper as well and ruined the picture!  Undecided Does anyone know why that happened?

Did you use watercolor paper?  I did this with some heavy sketch paper and the same thing happened but the watercolor paper worked better...also you can just use an eraser to remove it... I hope that helps some! Smiley

How beautiful! I've worked with watercolor for years, but never thought to do this. I just may have to now...

So I was hesitant to try to this since I've never done watercolors (or much painting) but it looked like so much fun!  I tried it out this weekend with wonderful results despite my lack of watercolor painting knowledge!  I now have some completed mother's day gifts!  Thank you so much for sharing this tute and opening me up to a new form of crafting with watercolors and masking fluid!  Yay!
