|Losing the Mask|
Now, I know I'm not the brightest bulb in the box,
but I really cannot get my head around the difference between a stencil and a mask.
They both seem the same to me,
and kinda do the same job.
And thank you, but don't try and explain either -
I suspect it's like the offside rule in football
which has been explained to me so many times but
still makes no sense.
And cricket - goodness only knows how cricket works!
So to avoid confusion and to keep 'on task'
I used masking fluid (for the filigree mask).
It didn't turn out as finely detailed as I was hoping
but I still quite like the effect it achieved and I
will be using masking fluid again.
Beware, masking fluid RUINS brushes, so don't
use one you particularly like!
