    Liquid Mask

    Hey folks,
    I've been looking for all sorts of liquid mask over the weekend, I've been all over the bay area in the last 72 hours and NOBODY has any. Is there a good online source where I could get some shipped to me ASAP?
    Thanks!
    - Jorge

    You might want to try
    www.fantasycostumes.com
    They are a huge store here in Chicagoland where I usually go to get my Halloween supplies. They do keep a good size makeup area. Good luck.

    Liquid mask is a type of masking fluid people here use it to mask off scratches on their armor/helmets.

    It's just Liquid Latex. Here are a few links you can order some but really any costume/magic shop should have some. Meijers or Wal-Mart even carries it sometimes.

    www.artstuf.com <---Great Site!
    www.monstermakers.com
    www.cinemasecrets.com
    www.deathstudios.com


    Hope those help.

    Even cheaper and imo better then liquid mask, mustard. Thats right plain old sandwich mustard.

    Check out TK409's site and macrobino tutorial for more info.

    I'm with LordFett....I actually went back to using mustard, after trying/buying some liquid mask.

    It works MUCH better, and is easier to remove when the paint job's finished

    If you're still having trouble finding liquid mask online I know that www.towerhobbies.com has it.I used to buy it from them when I was heavily into RC for the Lexan bodies.

    I've never heard of the mustard thing.....sounds awesome.Doesn't it stain though??? Mustard is notorious for staining everything and being impossible to get out.......I guess this isn't so on plastic/fiberglass,etc.

    Re: Liquid Mask

    Thanks for that link, is that kind of mask easy to work with? Can you brush it on?

    I went the mustard route for my last helmet I didn't really get the results I wanted and I still haven't been able to eat hotdogs, that mustard smell has been embedded into my brain.

    I used to use rubber cement, but found that liquid mask is a much better choice. Rubber cement works ok, but if you are doing very small and detailed weathering, rubber cement is too thick. Also, if you are doing a large area with a lot of damage, it can be confusing which areas you masked since rubber cement is practically clear when dry.
