I am able to add a few shadows around the shapes in the symbols and on the figure to give it some 3D feel with the resist still on.Once all is completely dry, I mean totally dry! I usually wait overnight because if you don’t, you will find that watercolor paper does rip and rub off when damp and there is no way to make it look right again. A painful lesson on a finished painting to say the least.
Get ready for a shock! I remove the mastik and reveal the saved white areas. I also go across the whole surface and erase out as much of the pencil as possible. Wa La! Isn’t that amazing?
