Hello, again! Lesson 5 of Altenew’s Creative Watercolor Media Class was on using dye inks for watercoloring.
The images were stamped and then the butterfly was covered with a masking fluid. Once dry, the background could be ‘smooshed’ on, dried, and the masking rubbed off.
This was only my second ever try with masking fluid. I don’t know if it was because of the type of fluid I used this time or the watercolor paper, but the paper wanted to pull up with the fluid…
But the nice thing about papercraft is most things are fixable… a Micron pen easily re-drew the lines, but when I watercolored the wing, the colors showed the lifted spots. Solution: Cover the areas with shiny metallics and dimensional liquids…
As the saying goes, ‘it’ll never be noticed on a galloping horse (or fluttering butterfly).’ lol
