Masking Fluid & Brayered SkyPosted: December 18, 2012
Following on from the tutorial I posted yesterday, today’s card features masking fluid to create falling snow but with a brayered sky instead of a sponged sky. With a brayer it is easier to create a uniform colour and coverage than it is with sponging. Usually I want variety and gradation in the sky but I also like to apply the ink with a brayer and create the kind of sky which I occasionally see, bright and beautiful on a winter’s day.
I used two hill masks to create this scene and used sponges on the snow banks where I gradation in the blue shadow. I stamped the winter ledge stamp once before removing the lower mask and then again over the corners of the panel. The masking fluid was applied in the same way as shown in yesterday’s tutorial.
We are expecting 5-10cm of snow tonight so perhaps I will see a scene like this sometime soon.
