Look at this beautiful watercolor portrait! You can make one of these using a stencil and some masking fluid; you don’t have to be a great fine artist to do so. weighanchor posted a great tutorial for this project. Anyone would be thrilled to receive a portrait of their loved one (or themselves!).

    What a great project! Can’t wait to get started on it. I have a couple of questions though. First, did you use an 8×10 print out of the picture? Second, What kind of tape did you use to tape the watercolor to the flat surface to prevent wrinkling? Third, can you re-use the brush used to paint the masking fluid if you are still using it with masking fluid in the future? Thanks in advance, Twistedsister50
