So, how did you like using masking fluid? If you don’t have that you can always apply white acrylic paint after the painting is dry for snow, heck, you can even sprinkle some iridescent glitter into it for extra realistic fun!

Supplies:
5″x7″ Strathmore watercolor card
Watercolors: Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, Hookers Green, Lemon Yellow
Brushes: #12 angle, #4 & #10 round, #2 liner
Other: Tape, pencil, water, masking fluid with old brush and soap, graphite paper

Have a great weekend and til next time happy crafting!
