|just a few photos I'd taken at the RA from the Ai Wei Wei exhibition - Sept. 2015|
Using Masking Fluid with a thin brush, I painted over my drawing - (bit fiddly).
I used a good quality water colour paper. I've enhanced this picture darker so the masking fluid is more visible, but the paper is a lovely light creamy colour.Leave it to completely dry.
|I then painted the pattern, using the masking fluid as a 'little wall'. Leave the paint to dry very well before rubbing off the masking fluid carefully. (this is quite satisfying!) If you use a not-so-good quality paper, the paper will rub off too!|
|This is still work in progress. (I Photoshopp'd the pic. above) but will paint another one. I do like the technique. It has a stencil-like quality, but softer.|
