Using Masking Fluid is Terrifying

…and knackers your brushes. Which is not entirely unexpected. So don’t use good brushes.  I took my own advice.

I finished the inking last night (this morning… *yawn). Showed it to my daugther this morning (the world’s harshest critic, after my wife). Her favourite was Gerry Shark, but apparently she loved the rest too. Bless. She also dropped the bomb that she (*eyelash flutter…) wants to help me paint it. Eep. Erm, OK.

I figured that I can get her to drip some paint on to the background for the sea and stuff. As long as I mask out the main characters which I’ll paint later, it should be alright… right?

Masking fluid is weird stuff. I’m sure there must be some sort of proper way to paint it only a google away. But, Sunday.
