masking technique background
What is the masking technique background?

Love this technique. You actually take masking tape and tear into small pieces and place it down on your surface (mine is watercolor paper) until you have it completely covered. Then you can stain it or paint it. I painted this one with metallic paints. You can even use shoe polish if you wish. Several years ago I remember doing this: we would take masking tape and cover a can or bottle and then use brown shoe polish and then wipe off some of it. My mother would add a candle to the bottle and we would use this when the lights went out. I guess some of you may remember this too. I make cards like this too and people always ask how I did it. Thanks for asking. DJ
