How To Use Masking Fluid Craft Ideas

Hi fellow crafters, and welcome! 

Whether you are new to masking fluid in the crafting world or you are just learning about it, we are here to share how you can use masking fluid in your crafts and share some different ideas you can try.

We love the diversity you can get with masking fluid and how many different surfaces you can use it on. You are truly limited only to your imagination!

Peel-Tek 150 Crafters Edition is a masking fluid we enjoy working with and have used it many, many times. Here are some of the diverse ways we have used Peel-Tek 150 Crafters Edition masking fluid in some of our craft projects.

7 DIFFERENT WAYS TO USE MASKING FLUID IN CRAFTS

See supplies for all projects below in our 'Idea List' right here, on Amazon

1. Use Masking Fluid For Painting Canvas Shoes

This was our most recent project using Peel-Tek Crafters Edition masking fluid. We hand-painted some white canvas shoes with watercolor paint and used the masking fluid to protect the areas of the shoes that we wanted to keep white.

We continued to paint these white canvas shoes with watercolor paints, and just look how they turned out!

Once we were finished we peeled off the Peel-Tek masking fluid and those areas stayed perfectly white. There was no carry-over of the mint green masking fluid color whatsoever.

2. Use Masking Fluid On A Custom Name Chalkboard With Watercolors

We made a sweet little chalkboard with the name "Jaina" on it using the masking fluid. We first painted a beautiful background on an 8x10 artist board and let it dry. Can you tell we are a fan of the galaxy theme? 

Once it dried, we outlined the name we wanted on it and then went over the name with our masking fluid.

We put the masking fluid on quite thick to make sure everything was thoroughly covered.

Once the masking fluid was dry, we put a second layer of paint over top using our watercolors in black, and went ahead and finished the rest of the chalkboard with blue chalkboard paint.

Once all of the paint was dry, we peeled off the masking fluid to reveal the name, which showed the first layer of paint we painted on. Just pop it into a frame and it's ready to go!

How cute!

Here is the final result of our project. Now we can leave cute little notes and reminders on it for Jaina!

3. Use Masking Fluid To Paint Designs On Rocks

We have painted a few rocks around here at DIY Craft Club (see them here!). And we really enjoy the effect that a masking fluid can provide to reveal the natural rock underneath.

We started by watering down our masking fluid slightly just to make it a bit more fluid and then hand-painted a cute design on a rock we found.

Once our masking fluid was dry on the rock, we went ahead and fully covered the rock with a bright, bold acrylic paint.

Look how dark and beautiful that color is!

Once the paint was dry, we peeled the masking fluid off and revealed the natural stone underneath. How satisfying!

It was a really great rock painting project!

4. Making Designs On Coffee-Stained Paper With Masking Fluid

It's so great when you can use things you have around the house to create beautiful art.

We really enjoy staining paper with coffee, and you can take this a step further by creating beautiful designs using masking fluid.

See our video for how to make coffee-stained paper below! This was actually one of the first videos we made on YouTube but it is our most popular DIY video! Have you subscribed to our channel yet?

To take the coffee-stained paper a step further, we introduced some Peel-Tek 150 Crafters Edition masking fluid.

By following the video above, we did an initial paper stain with coffee.

Once that paper was dry, we proceeded to paint a leaf design with the masking fluid. We layered it on quite thick for this project since we were going to immerse it again in coffee to darken it up. For this project, we wanted to see the coffee stain underneath the masking fluid.

Here is the design we painted!

Once the masking fluid was dry, we fully re-immersed the paper in our cooled down coffee once more.

And again, we let the page completely dry before moving on to the next step.

Once the page was totally dry, we carefully peeled away the masking fluid. Another satisfying peel!

5. Use Masking Fluid With Watercolor Paint

One question we see people asking around the internet is how to use masking fluid with watercolor paint on watercolor paper.

Masking fluid can easily be used with watercolor paint by taking your paintbrush, and painting the areas with masking fluid which you would like masked out and letting it dry completely, then painting overtop with watercolor paint.

We tested Peel-Tek's masking fluid on watercolor paper, and we were quite happy with the result.

We painted our watercolor paint overtop of our image and once the paint was completely dry, we lightly scratched off our masking fluid.

6. How To Use Masking Fluid On Easter Eggs

Holidays are so fun when you are a creative crafter. I know we are always looking for new and exciting ways to bring a holiday to life, and painting Easter eggs is one way we can let our creativity run wild!!!

We started by boiling our eggs and making sure they were dry. We then went right to our Peel-Tek masking fluid to paint our designs, as we wanted the bright white of the egg to show through.

We painted several cute designs on these eggs!

After dying the eggs and letting them completely dry, we carefully peeled off the masking fluid to reveal our Easter egg pattern!

7. How To Use Masking Fluid To Make Christmas Cards, Tags And Pictures

Masking fluid can be especially fun at Christmas time when there are so many cards, gift tags, gift wrap and more you can design and make on your own! And doesn't that just make those gifts and crafts even more special?

We went with our trusted coffee-stained paper for these crafts. 

We started by measuring and cutting our paper for these Christmas crafts, and then we drew out the design.

We painted our lettering on using Peel-Tek masking fluid, and actually added a slight amount of water to help with the flow. We then proceeded to paint our image and letters with our masking fluid.

 After our masking fluid dried, we submersed our papers in coffee. You can dip once or a few times to get your perfect level of desired darkness.Masking Fluid For Christmas Crafts

The Peel-Tek came off very easily on these Christmas crafts, and we were so happy with the results! Just look how turned out:
