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!

This is so neat, I'm going to have to try this out soon! Do you know if it would work with any other types of paint? Like if I used acrylic as opposed to watercolors would that work, or would the masking not work...?

I believe that masking fluid is specific for watercolor....

Is there a mask for acrylic type paints?

Here are the ones I did (This is my first go at watercoloring, so I don't really have a technique going):


My husband and I


My mother-in-law and nephew (this one tore so I'm going to make it again)


My sister and I


Another of my husband and I (I figured out that I should outline his beard)


One of our wedding photos


My niece (this one is my favorite.  I gave it to my mother-in-law for mother's day)


My brother-in-law and niece (I gave this one to my sister-in-law for mother's day)

Aaaand that's it.  For now!  *dramatic music*  ^_^  thanks again for the amazing tute.  Without it I would never had ventured into this wonderful art.
