How to use Pébéo’s masking gum marker?

Step 1: Use the marker to trace over the lines you want to leave white. The translucent blue liquid allows you to see where you’re at in your work. Let dry. Note: For added precision, we used a pencil to trace the lines that were to be gummed beforehand. This step is optional, but it makes the process easier. 

Step 2: Paint with watercolours. No need to worry about the gum, paint over it as needed. Let dry.

Step 3: Remove the dried masking fluid with the masking fluid eraser. Your white sections will reappear like magic! Note: Erase the pencil marks if you traced lines beforehand.

Test and practice applying the gum to small details (stars, dots, designs, leaves…)
