Watercolour and a masking fluid marker (from the Fodder Book)

I have mentioned here before how very much I love my molotow masking fluid marker. It's like the tool I never knew I wanted and now can't live without.

I'm mostly using it for making patterns in the Fodder Book. In case you don't remember: the Fodder Book is an A4 sized moleskine watercolour book that I use mostly for playing with watercolour patterns or as I like to call it 'watercolour nonsense'. ;-)

Here are five pages where I used beautiful deep watercolours and the masking fluid marker.

In case you were wondering if I'm some sort of prodigy who can actually draw a straight line and pretty perfect circles: no of course I'm not. I use a circle template and a ruler like any other normal  person would. ;-)

Using tools with the masking fluid marker means you have to clean them along the way very often, because the rubbery substance sticks to them, also I regularly have to clean the tip of the marker to keep it free from little crumbs of rubber. But hey, it's worth the hassle if the result is so nice, right?

Have you ever come across a tool or art supply that you never even knew existed and that you can not live without now? I'd love to read about it in the comments!

Wishing you all a wonderful and artsy day.
