(It pretty much works like sticking a tape on a paper and then painting over it, except it is a fluid, not a tape :)
I am really happy that I found the masking fluid in the art shop; I had to look through thousands of products, all with labels in German. I am not yet so good in German to be able to figure out how to say a colorless masking fluid, so asking the shop keepers for instructions where to find it was a big no go :D Once I had it in my hands, I immediately had ideas how to use it in my drawings.
I have spent 2013 practising drawing faces, which have been a big challenge for me in the past and in 2014, I would like to go back to including a little bit of typography/ design touch in my illustrations.
Hence the little text in my new blue hair fairy, which was born this November.
