Mixed Media Doodle / Bible Art Journaling with Masking Fluid
“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse” -Romans 1:20
I started this piece by writing the word “Believe” on watercolor paper with Art Masking Fluid. Once I finished applying all the paint, gesso and heavy gesso (and all where dry) I rubbed off the masking fluid with my finger.
There are many brands to chose from…you can even find a bottle that has a small brush or pen like applicator. I applied it with a round paint brush. When using a paint brush, make sure you clean it right away with warm soapy water.

Below is a practice page in my Bible. I did the same process on a page in the back titled “Weights and Measures.” I wanted to make sure the masking fluid would come off without tearing my Bible page. I would suggest working fairly quickly. Allowing the masking fluid to sit on your page for too long, may make it harder to rub off without tearing your page. After you apply the fluid, you can start painting as soon as you can touch it without it coming off on your finger. I waited about 10 minutes.
Feel free to ask questions if you have any!
