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 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!

how much time to dry?

Thanks! Dry time varies depending on the thickness of the frisket...maybe 10 minutes. :)

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.

Aw, thanks--means a lot coming from a painting major! :)
