    Liquid Mask

    I am looking for a liquid mask that is compatible with automotive grade(PPG,DuPOnt,Sikkens,etc) paint?and sold by the gallon.
    Has anyone purchased a liquid mask form a automotive paint store?I dont think a liquid mask purchased at a hobby store would work with the base/clear products I use at the body shop.I am affaid of a messy color bled thur might happen
    Thank you for the help

    The best liquid masked I've used thus far is the Windsor/Newton brand but I'm not sure if your paint choice is compatible with this product.

    Is there any way you could test the paints you use against some liquid latex?
    I don't know that the stuff sold at arts and crafts stores would be available in "gallon" sizes. Liquid latex is available in much larger quantities.

    You can usually find Liquid latex in gallon or larger sizes. Masking fluid is just watered down liquid latex anyhow, so if I were you LOPERO I'd grab a gallon of straight latex and use that.

    I use Parma, but I'm not sure how it will work on automotive grade paints.

    Ditto. But 75ml is $10.00 at the local Hobby Lobby! YIKES! It's pricey, but good! Don't know how resistant Latex is to auto paints...

    I'm glad this thread was made. Thanks LOPERO! I have a 67 Mustang I want do do some custom painting on when I get to it. This will be a lot easier than taping.
