Using Artist Tape/ Fritch Scrubber

Using Artist Tape/ Fritch Scrubber



welcome to cheap Joe's test studio today I'd like to show you how I use the artist tape and the fridge scrubber combined to clean up some dirty areas of watercolor some areas that are dull and need a little lift a little light brought into them first I'm going to show you about the artist tape because it's such a handy product and I'm going to take a little piece and I'm actually going to put on my apron right there and we'll take another little piece and put it on the apron now I'm not doing that just for the fun of it because you don't want to go directly from the roll of tape to your painting you actually do want to put it on your jeans or your shirt or somewhere and that helps remove some of the tack from the tape so that it won't tear it when you when you put it pull it up from the painting and then I'm going to put that one right there I'm going to put this one right here and I'm going to take this one and maybe put right over right over here on that then we'll take the fridge scrubber and this is a size 16 regular oval fridge scrubber wet it really well I'll have a couple of tissues in my hand and I'm going to wet the area I want to lift do the same thing right in here and right over here the same way exactly and what that does is activates that paint in there and then I come in here and absolutely just scrub just what it says a fridge scrubber and I will blot it see how I'm blotting that right there I'll come back in here and do the same thing I'm playing a lot of pressure down on it now putting pressure in there and hopefully it's going to lighten a lot of this area it's otherwise that dull on me and then I simply block that out just like that I don't know if it'll work or not but we're sure gonna try darling and see we're gonna lift some of this right in here where it got dull and putting a little light direction now very carefully will remove the tape look at that it did it lifted look at that oh we got some life back in there now from that now we can take the fridge scrubber and just dampen part of this little pathway leading into that and just kind of be ruthless and scrub it right out and sometimes you end up with some really neat little unexpected things happening when you do this almost need another tissue donor but that works fine look at that Wow now if I come back into it and touch it up just a little bit with some darker color and I'm not going to worry about what color I'm using particular I'm just going to clean up these edges just a little bit right in there and maybe the same way he would put a little darker eave right in there and perhaps the windows in it I might come back with a painting that really we could salvage and end up with something pretty neat in there kind of fun to play with it anyhow because it was no good to begin with so if I can salvage something out of it now I can and if I can't I've had fun playing with it and trying that's the fridge scrubber and the artist tape both very handy to have
