This is wonderful! I'm going to go find some masking fluid so I can do one for my mom for mother's day!

I love my masking fluid, but I never would have thought of using it like this!

How is it supposed to be used?

Can this be used for fabric too?

That looks really neat.  Thanks for sharing your technique.  I may need to try that sometime.

Splendid!  I'll have to give it a try.  Thanks so much for the tut.  I would have never guessed it on my own.

I need to try this!  I love using watercolours in unusual ways (monocromatics or with really saturated colours) and this is right up my alley!

Bravo! Clear, concise, and exactly what I was hoping for (even with the tricky switch of pics....) I can already think of several photos that might desaturate well.

First thing tomorrow I'll begin my local search for masking fluid...and if that goes as well as expected, I'll return to the computer to find a distributor who will ship masking fluid to central Japan! Thanks for the inspiration!

Can this be used for fabric too?

I have the same question.  Looks great on paper, though!   Wink

Actually, now that I'm thinking about it, for fabric, you can just use melted wax, just like you would for batik, only using brushes to apply the dye rather than immersion dyeing it?  It's only that wax is such a pain to get out of the fabric again.   Tongue
