I don't understand the masking fluid and salt part, tho. What exactly is masking fluid? *shot

:icongrimdreamart:

Thanks :D I'll try to explain:
Masking fluid is a special liquid which can be used for covering a part of a drawing so it will not be painted over with watercolors. It is placed with a brush just like a paint but when it dries up, it changes into something similar to chewing gum. Then the masking fluid can be removed. The part of the drawing which was covered by it remains white.
Salt absorbs water. You can place it on a wet painting and the grains of salt will absorb water around them which will create irregular textures.

I believe so, though it may not be available in all art shops. I buy it simply via Internet because in my town there are no such shops :)

Hey! Very nice work :) I began to use masking fluid quite recently. For many years I've been thinking that it's completely useless but now I find it pretty helpful in most cases.
