I'm trying to get that effect, but the masking fluid comes off with paper... I've tried applying it thick, thin and watered down with water, but still when I peel it off, the paper uderneath it is mostly white... Can you help me with advice? Is my paper too thick or something?
No~ That happened to me a lot too. Some papers like Arches have a stronger surface and will not rip as easily and will absorb more colour so it might work better. In the end I stopped using masking fluid.

Oh, and what kind brush would you recommend using for the frisket? I have user liquid frisket I'm the past, but I ended up having to throw my brush away because it got ruined
wont it be that if i used a kneading eraser to remove the masking fluid, it would erase the lineart? then if i used my finger, wouldn't it smudge the drawing? how about you, what do YOU do to remove the masking fluid?
