Fear no more. Here is a way to test those next brush strokes or techniques without touching your WIP.
The WIP for this post was a Yupo paper substrate with an acrylic pour background which was allowed to dry throughly. Image was sketched onto the background lightly with a pencil or watercolor pencils. Whites and light values were lifted from the acrylic background using 99% rubbing alcohol-dipped Q-tips and other tools.
Water does not disturb dry acrylic paint, so watercolors were chosen as the medium to paint over the acrylic background. Use the same brand and colors of watercolors as you will use when you paint on the clear Dura-Lar film.
Place a sheet of clear Grafix Dura-Lar Film over your WIP. Tape it down on two opposing corners, not touching your WIP, but keeping the film in place.
