    ... if someone comes into this forum and asks "what the right masking fluid is", I'm going to tell them to use actual masking fluid.
    Then you're absolutely right!

    It looks to me like Windsor and Newton (A watercolour paint manufacturer), I have a big bottle of it at home. I also have a litre can of Latex, stuff smells exactly the same and spreads exactly the same.

    *Reads the back of the bottle*

    IS exactly the same

    Anyone knows what happends if you let it stay on for too long? I'm sick and can't paint at the moment, but I have a lot of parts that needs masking. Can I safely mask my parts and paint when I'm feeling better, or will the fluid be hard to remove after a while?

    I have the Humbrol masking fluid, but I also have a big bottle of liquid latex I would like to try.

    It'll come off either way, latex only really sticks to itself.

    It might take a few goes to get it off is all.
