My son and d-i-l were married in the Bahamas with a beautiful and serene setting. They wanted me to do a painting of the setting for them which I was excited to do. However, I ran into problems. Does anything ever go smoothly? I used masking fluid to protect the white areas and when I attempted to remove it by gently rubbing, it tore my 300 lb. wc paper. There is a close-up of the damage below.
I have used masking fluid in the past but in small areas, with much success. This is the first I have tried it in a larger area. Any artists out there with suggestions? I have the drawing all done on a fresh sheet of wc paper but I'm afraid to apply the fluid, but I don't know of an alternative other than being very careful and painting each area separately.
