Debbie Cullis revisits an old watercolour painting in a new medium of acrylic inks and Allie Pottinger suggests mixing up your usual watercolours with lots of texture.

30-minute challenge with Debbie Cullis Ocean Deep in Acrylic Ink

Long time SAA member and PA, Debbie Cullis, uses Blue Masking Fluid to describe negative shapes in this painting, 'Ocean Deep'. Using a limited palette of blue Daler-Rowney System 3 Acrylic Inks.

Debbie uses her finger to remove the masking fluid, but if you don't like the feeling of removing lots of masking fluid you could also use a Maskaway Block.
