1.Before applying masking fluid the paper must be totally dry
2. dip the brush in liquid soap then wipe off excess soap
3.dip the brush in masking fluid and apply it to the paper in the area where white needs to be preserved
4.work for a short time and wash the brush ,to prevent the masking fluid from hardening on it
5.proceed with the painting,it is okay to paint over the mask
6.Masking fluid can be removed when the paper is completely dry

I am Subha alias Reshmi ,an art enthusiasist and above all...an enthusiastic learner, brought up in Chennai,India. Right from my childhood ,I was fascinated by nature. I always feel that nature has forced me to doodle with my brushes and paints.I work with oil, acrylic, pastels and watercolor and have exhibited my paintings in art exhibitions in Howard county, Maryland,USA .I am a member of Howard county arts council and have also participated in the art sale event conducted by them http://www.hocoarts.org/. In my blog I would love to share my experiments with new techniques of painting and discuss the mistakes I encountered. I believe this endeavour would help me sharpen my artistic skills and broaden my knowledge in painting, thus help me grow to be an accomplished artist .
At this point what comes to my mind is the last stanza ofRobert Frost's poem Stopping by the woods
"The woods are lovely dark and deep,
but I have promises to keep,
and miles to go before I sleep,
and miles to go before I sleep."
