This arrangement is really beautiful!
Thank you, arqetancourt, for your warm words.
Brilliant use of complementary pairs Nikira. Just sublime!
Thank you very much, Bob. I was trying to use masking fluid, but it got thick like a jello, do you think I can add water and mix? In the jar? It is Winsor & Newton.
Yes, Nikira, you can thin masking fluid with water but don’t overdo it or it won’t cover as good. You will have to experiment to get the right consistency. Is your masking fluid quite old? It does tend to “go off” and thicken with age. If this happens its best to replace it. I usually dip my brush into neat washing up liquid and make sure this is rubbed well into the bristles. Then I can paint the stuff onto the page without fear of the brush being ruined. This also tends to thin the M.Fluid. Remember to wash the brush afterwards.
What is Washing up liquid? I don’t have it. I bought special “Incredible Nib” wooden 2 side thing, last time in Pearl Paint, but it was not comfortable at all. may be because too thick? Masking fluid not too old. Just rarely use it.
Ah the differences in our respective languages. Washing up liquid is the stuff used to wash dishes (unless you use a dishwasher)Comes in squeezable bottles – are you having me on? Stop teasing me I must admit I would find it hard to apply the MF (Known, I believe as “Frisket” in the USA) with a wooden nib. Try my brush idea or even a “dip in” old fashioned pen.
Uncle Bob has a lot of experience in this area of masking fluids,
so you will want to follow his advice.
But, if you get stuck, you might wish to try these ideas.
You mention you have Winsor & Newton Colourless Art Masking
Fluid – and that’s one of the best.
You want the fluid to be as thin as milk – no thicker, no thinner.
And, if water doesn’t work, you may wish to try ammonia –
I use a bamboo pen, and sometimes a bamboo skewer (from the
@j. stremikis, Thank you so much for your informative answer and the link. Mine W&N is a bit yellow, I wanted it to be visible if on white paper.This “Incredible Nib”, I got, seems to be useful, according to info in this link. I will have to thin liquid first and try. I am listening to Bob, of course. But my only dipping pen has a pointing finger on a hand (I don’t know where I got it), so it may not hold anything.
