Watercolor Medium

Natural Rubber Pick-up  An indispensable tool in the watercolorist's arsenal, use rubber cement pick-ups to cleanly remove liquid frisket and masking fluid from your watercolor paintings without damaging the paper underneath. Firm, textured rubber wafers can be reused again and again, unlike an eraser, and will not smudge your colors or mark up your paper as might happen if you just used a finger to remove frisket. Try a rubber cement pick-up today and you'll wonder how you ever painted in watercolors without one!
