    May 30, 2004, 5:48 PM - Using the Mustard Trick #1

    Hey Fetts,

    I have a pair of Fett knee pieces that I've painted chrome. I then traced with a pencil where I wanted the chrome to show. I covered those areas with mustard and took a hair dryer to it to harden the mustard. I painted on 3 coats of yellow primer and 1 coat of the actual yellow paint. I plan to put 2 more coats of the yellow, then hit both knee pieces with a light misting of rust colored primer. After all those layers of paint, will I be able to get the mustard to come off without scraping it off? I was hoping to use a little rubbing alcohol on a cloth, but what does everyone else do? Thanks!

    To get the mustard off just take your fingernail and scratch it off. A chemical may affect the rest of the paint but I don't think it would take the mustard off.

    If it gives you grief, scratch a few spots and then put the parts under running water. It should loosen up the rest of the mustard.
