Interesting technique. I've a bottle of masking fluid somewhere that I've never used, this looks like something fun to try out with it, :XD: if the bottle hasn't dried out yet that is.

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.
