Hi everyone,

I am hoping that someone can help me with some questions about masking fluid. I usually do paper crafts or sculptures but I have been venturing out into painting and drawing lately... mostly so I will be able to draw my sculptures in advance and have new techniques for painting them.
I just discovered masking fluid and have used it successfully with watercolours, but I want to try using it with acrylic paints because I have a great idea and prefer acrylics, anyway. (Also, I have no more watercolours and can't spare the money right now, so that doesn't help!! Embarrassed Undecided)

So I have 3 questions:
Can it be painted on top of acrylic paint that has already dried? I have an old canvas with a background already painted...I would like use it, if possible, instead of using a blank one. It is really nice and I have no other use for it right now. (It is the inspiration for my great idea!)
Does anyone have a good website or resource about using masking fluid with acrylic paints?
Can it be used with watercolour pencils?

Thanks in advance for your help!!

Dear Craftster Friends,
Three years ago, I was much younger and dumber and I flaked on a few swaps. I am back and I promise to make it up to everyone I hurt. I had been flaked on a couple of times, and I know how cra**y it feels. I am really sorry.

Hi,

This post is almost a year old but maybe you will be sent a heads up notice telling you have a reply.  Probably by now you have it all worked out if not here's my take on this. Go ahead and try it! Nothing ventured, nothing gained. I see no reason why it can't be painted on top of a previously dried acrylic paint. I haven't tried it myself but it is something I would do if I needed to do it for whatever reason .I think it will work. Once you remove the mask and the painting underneath shows just paint that area over in whatever color you want there. It should work for you. Let me know how it goes...or went.
