It’s finally time to bring the Play Drawer to YouTube for once! I’ve been wanting to play with masking fluids (aka friskets) for a while, and have been collecting a few. I put them to the test in this video. Supplies are in the doobliedoo. Note that there are ways around some of the bloop issues shown – but I wanted to use the products as purchased before adapting – so stay tuned for an update soon on some other things I’m trying that are already meeting with more success. If you can’t see the video, click HERE to see it on YouTube.


Here’s a shot of the comparison of the four friskets, labelled. As you can see, none of the “color” of any of these transferred to the watercolor paper. (I used THIS cardstock for the test and card both.)

And because a number of you have been asking…it’s THIS color today. *grin*
