Road Test Friday - Grumbacher Miskit Liquid Frisket

Hi everyone! Welcome to another Friday Road Test! We'll be giving our Road Testers new products to try out and reporting back the results and (hopefully) great experiences.

Today Deb from A Time to Stamp shows us how to use the masking fluid Grumbacher Miskit Liquid Frisket.

Grumbacher Miskit Liquid Frisket 559 is a fluorescent orange coloured frisket, for use on hard-sized watercolour papers, photos, and other media, to mask areas that are meant to be painted once the dried frisket is removed.

It washes out of pens and brushes with soap and water, and comes in a 1.2 oz (35 ml) glass jar. Make sure you clean your brush straight after using it, don’t leave your brushes to dry out.

This product contains latex.

Note: To assure longevity of this product, Grumbacher recommends storing the jar upside-down, with the cap securely closed.

Here is a tutorial on the project I made using the Liquid Frisket.

 1.  I stamped Tim Holtz Bird Crazy stamps on a sheet of white cardstock

  2.  I then applied the Liquid Frisket to the eyes and beaks of all the birds, using a fine paint brush. You have to be careful to stay within the lines of the eyes or whatever piece you are using it for. If you don’t keep in the lines and go past them it will show up later when you start to put on your background colour. The Liquid Frisket is orange in colour so is quite easy to see where you have put it.

  3. I can now apply colour to all the stamped birds, using Tim Holtz Distress Inks, sponged on with a dauber. As you can see by the photo there is no way you can sponge on the colour without getting it everywhere, this is why I love the Liquid Frisket

4. After adding the colour I then very gently rubbed on the birds eyes and beaks with my finger, until the Liquid Frisket starts to peel off. You have to be gentle otherwise you may peel off the cardstock as well. So gently does it! You can see on this picture where I went over the stamped line a tiny bit with the Liquid Frisket, it is easy to fix, just add more colour.

 5. Once I had peeled off all the Liquid Frisket I then started on my project. I love how the eyes turned out so white, it makes them really pop off the paper! Here are the projects I made using Tim Holtz’s Bird Crazy Stamp Set.

Tim Holtz Distress Ink Festive Berries, Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar, Squeezed Lemonade, Crushed Olive, Dried Marigold, Shaded Lilac, Seedless Preserves, Dusty Concord, Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Peacock Feathers.

Wow! What a useful product and beautiful creations.
Check back with us later in the week, when we'll have a pictorial step-by-step from Deb on how to create that fabulous journal cover.
A big thank you to Deb for taking Miskit on the road for us.
Have a brilliant weekend!

Aunty Vera :)
