Using Wax Resist

My blog has now moved to www.artistsophie.com so this blog will have no more articles on it.

First time using wax resist. I find masking fluid a bit too ridged so instead I experimented with loose scribble strokes of wax on the squirrels tail for a sketchier colour blocking method. The only thing to keep in mind is that no paint can be added on the waxed area, which remains permanently blocked, unlike masking fluid which can be painted after removed.
