instead of the masking tape? If so, I think the masking tape is a better option. I don't recommend using masking fluid with oil paints

The cost of fluid is prohibitive for large areas.  Contact paper seems to be a better option for most projects.

I have done the wood effect in oil with the strawberies (2 classes in one) on a 10  x 10 inches canvas.  My strawberies and wood were taken from my kitchen table and photographed from a low angle not from the top. Any advice welcome.

my advice would be to add the same wood effect into the top left corner then to sell it :congrats:

Wow, Danielle, that's quite a painting.  Love the texture of the strawberry against the grain of the wood.
