I was just watching a video by Phil Davies with Art tutor.com  it is called (the complete guide to masking fluid for watercolours) it is about using different object to make different types of marks.  It is worth looking at.

Danielle, I had posted this, with the link, in the Watercolor section. Like you, I appreciated some of these tips.

 :thankyou: Sue I received it by email yesterday but I did not recall seeing it on the forum. I should check the wc place more often.

Yes, I also received the e-mail and, after watching it, thought it might be something useful to share. Despite what he said, though, I think I will still use a brush to apply masking fluid to larger areas. But for the smaller ones and the spatter, he's got some good ideas.

What about a sponge brush for large areas?  Cheaper and net edges.

Maybe you should combined these 2 posts.
Cheers, Annie

Annie, I have considered the sponge brush. Have you tried it?

That's what I used to do the Jan challenge... my only attempt at watercolor.  But my daughter used these all the time.  She also uses them with wax as masking on pottery before applying the glaze.  Same idea, and the sponge (given a good one that keeps it form) makes very sharp lines.

Beware that some as so flimsy that they break down and don't keep their shape.  I think the good ones were from Home Depot.

I tried the smodger for the pastel and it did not work to well for me.
