View Full Version : Frisket/Masking fluid question

01-20-2004, 12:23 PM
I've never used this stuff before. I've got some (Winsor Newton brand). I'm working on a piece that has a central figure with a dark background. I've draw in the basics of the central figure with watercolor pencils (Staedtler Karat brand). I've also shaded in the background. Now I want to use some watercolor over the background to make it darker. Can I used the frisket on the figure without taking up the color when it is removed?

frisket i know takes up graphite pencil...so my guess is that it would also pull up cp. best piece of advice is to do a test.

agree with Arlene here..frisket(I use this particular one too) can also take quite a bit of watercolour off when you lift it..
let us know how your test goes..
