trying zest it brushable resist with watercolour



I ordered some cold wax from Zest It and saw this brushable wax resist for watercolours so thought I'd try it. It came this morning and I LOVE it!

I hate the hard edges of masking fluid and don't use it but this I will be using a lot!

I put it on with a colour shaper (rubbery tipped mark making tool) and then sloshed watercolour over it - NO waiting! and drew into the wet wash a little with inktense and watersoluble cp

So fun! I like the results you got with this new product. Can you provide a link? Not seen this in any of our art supply catalogs. I also detest masking fluid and its hard edges.

That looks really neat - I'd like to try it also. I agree, I hate masking fluid, not just because of the hard edges, but because I always get it everywhere and can never seem to get to go where I want or get it off when I want!

The saa.co.uk sells this product. I normally use a wax stick for masking sparkles on water etc.. and like to use masking sparingly using a ruling pen for fine lines or a bamboo pen for broader lines.If the line is too harsh i soften it at the edges.

Re: trying zest it brushable resist with watercolour

it's on here - I love the cold wax medium, the liquid for painting with when you need a thinner and now this brushable resist

It's actually made locally, which I hadn't realised

yes I too use wax sticks, candle and oil pastel as a resist but this is even better

Re: trying zest it brushable resist with watercolour

I've experimented with Gamblin's cold wax and Dorland's wax medium. I imagine that more solvent (OMS/White Spirit) would make that type stuff brushable. I played with Dorland's and oil pastels quite a bit years ago, and the tiniest bit of OMS would soften it considerably for spreading with a painting knife.

Re: trying zest it brushable resist with watercolour

I saw this for sale and wondered if it works. I may have to get some!
