Introduction: Watercolor Word Art With Frisket!

Watercolor Word Art with Frisket!

Make stunning wall art quotes for a bedroom, notes, and cards!

Step 1: Supplies

You will need:
Liquid Frisket and Incredible Nib

Watercolor paper

Watercolors

Step 2: Paint the Frisket!

Begin by dipping the nib brush into the frisket and painting or
drawing on the desired quote or image.

Whatever you draw on will be white at the end...it just masks off the paper and keeps the paint off!

Then let it dry completely.

I use frog tape to tape my paper to the table...this helps it from curling.

Step 3: Watercolor!

Next brush the paper with water...
Then start adding color!

I love the rainbow look!

Let the colors bleed and mix!

Sprinkle with a little bit of salt for fun effects!
Splatters and splashes are great too!

Step 4: Dry and Remove Frisket!

Let it dry completely.
Then lift up the edge of the frisket and roll it off!

It's fabulous!

Step 5: Repeat!

It's highly addictive too!
Makes great wall art, cards or notes!

Step 6: Ta-da!

Let dry, then hang or frame!

I have a major in painting with an emphasis in watercolor and I thought I had seen it all! But not until I saw your instructable. Very very cool idea and result.
