    Hi, Ginny.

    Our ArtistsNetwork.tv editor Jennifer Lepore says that in this preview, Susan uses packing tape as a stencil to remove color. Please note: you should only attempt this on Arches watercolor paper, as it may take up the surface on other papers. If you use other papers, try using shelf paper or frisk film instead of the packing tape.

    Hope that helps!

    I would love to know more about that TAPE.
    WHAT kind of tape is it?
    This is extremely important to the process and it got left off the instructions!
    Please let us know!!! Is this just clear packing tape or something else?
    This is a great little tip and I’d like to pass it along.

    That was cool. I was impressed by how much of the red came up with how she did it. I’m used to thinking of watercolor as something that once it’s down, that’s what’s there.

    That discipline has helped me in quite a few paintings but it’s also left me with old paintings I might be able to salvage, change and improve. I’ll have to try this sometime.

    I may also want to pick up that book sometime, it sounds intriguing!
