If you want to apply masking fluid to your drawing without any of the hassles related with brushes then take a look at this tip.

Masking Fluid Trick


With this applicator you can very accurately apply masking fluid to a drawing. Very thin lines an be applied as well a large areas. Obviously with large areas a brush is better. I have used this applicator for tiny delicate areas as well as for grasses and waves and foam and such like.

YaY :yippee: I love it when a "plan comes together"  :clap: :clap:

By the way, if you use the transparent Magic Mending Tape it is much easier to see where you are cutting. Just be careful not to cut right through the paper - very easy to do. Use just enough pressure to cut through the tape. use a new sharp blade.

ALWAYS remember to burnish the tape on the painting side flush with the paper to prevent paint seeping underneath.
