    I've heard of Vaseline, rubber cement, and latex methods but does mustard really work?.
    Yep, actual mustard! Personally, I don't care for the results, but many do. As they say: "Your mileage may vary". Just have to find what works for YOU!

    i used scratch away method as did MMM. Basicly painted my armor the following colors :

    primer grey, yellow, cobalt blue, hugger orange, and about 4 coats of white... and than beat the hell out of it. Dragged it around the sidewalk, threw rocks at it, shot at it, etc...i think MMM shot his also, but with a real gun.

    if ya want pics, email me!

    Yea it is actual mustard, not a color of paint as someone said. But instead of investing in liguid mask or something like that just apply a little mustard to the areas you want masked, let dry, paint over it, then scratch off.

    liquid? i thought it was mustard powder, like how people use charcoal to add dirt. That seems like it could get messy.

    Nope the liquid stuff. It isn't very messy, you apply it with a paint brush like you would liquid mask or something. It is kinda messy when you scratch it off it leaves dried up mustard everywhere unless you do it somewhere then sweep.
