Masking with Liquid Frisket

Welcome to the third installment of our masking series. Be sure to catch up on anything you missed in the first two tutorials.

Masking Basics

Masking with Selective Inking

We know you’re eager to try you hand at masking and we are certainly excited to see your cards demonstrating the technique. We are offering you a little incentive to get inky. One lucky stamper will win all three stamp sets that have been featured during our masking series; Pure Innocence Farmer Girl, Pure Innocence On a Picnic, and You’re so Special to Me. Simply link your card at the bottom of this post by Friday, August 9 at noon EST. The winner will be randomly selected from all the entries.

Today we’re introducing you to another masking technique using liquid frisket. We will combine the use of masking paper and liquid frisket to layer stamped images and create a scene.

Liquid frisket is helpful when masking smaller areas where it would be tedious to create a paper mask. Liquid frisket is applied with a small paint brush to the areas you wish to mask. Once dry, it can easily be removed by rubbing it off with your finger or a soft eraser leaving the area clean for coloring.


Step 1: To begin, stamp the girl onto white card stock.

Step 2: Create a mask by stamping the girl again onto Eclipse Masking Paper and carefully cut out the image, cutting away the thinner areas, such as the purse strap and tendrils of hair. Those areas are difficult to cover with a paper mask, so we will use the liquid frisket instead.

Step 3: Place the paper mask over the stamped image and then stamp the flowers along the base of image, overlapping the girl’s purse and shoes.

Step 4: Leaving the mask in place, use a small paintbrush to apply liquid frisket to the flowers, leaves, purse straps and tendrils of hair.  Allow it to dry completely before continuing.

Step 5: Once the liquid frisket is dry, airbrush or sponge around the image to create the ground and sky.

Step 6: Remove the paper mask and the liquid frisket.

Step 7: Your image is now ready to be colored with the coloring medium of your choice.
