This medium masks and protects areas of work from subsequent washes of color. It dries to a water impervious film and can be removed by gently peeling or rubbing.

Art Masking Fluid is available in pale yellow and colorless form. Pale yellow leaves a visible mask that makes removal easy. When masking very absorbent papers, however, the colorless fluid is best because it won’t stain.

Unlike Permanent Masking Medium, Art Masking Fluid is removable. It comes in 2.5-ounce (75 ml) bottles.

Product Questions and Answers

The masking fluid has been on the painting for over a month, and it is not coming off. It is very sticky and clings to the Arches paper. What can I use to take this off?

- Asked by grace on 17-Feb-14

This is not meant to stay on that long, especially on Arches paper which is so fibrous. It is latex and clings the longer it stays on. Winsor and Newton suggests a light scraping tool. Rubber Cement Pick-up may also help.

This was good, fresh masking fluid. Fast service, too.

This Art Masking Fluid is very effective. It preserves the area you are masking very effectively. Keep it in your artist box. You will be glad you did.
Rated by: Julie D. in Northern, NY
Fantastic as usual, never fails. I've never had a problem with the pale yellow tint leaving a stain but if you're worried, buy the colorless. They both work great.

The best way to keep the mask from gumming up your brushes is to put a small amount of liquid soap on the brush and rubbing it in the palm of you hand to suds it up a little before dipping it into the mask. When you are finished just rinse off the mask and the soap at the same time. Don't forget to apply the soap again the next time you use the mask.

The best I have found so far.
Rated by: Antonia T. in San Diego, CA
Once you get it on the paper, this masking fluid does a fabulous job, producing a crisp edge and leaving no residue behind. My problem is with my brushes. The frisket dries almost immediately, gumming up the applicator brush, and the brush is then all but impossible to salvage. You can kind of pick out the dried rubber with your fingers, but this does a marginal job. My solution so far has been to buy a supply of super-cheap craft brushes, but if anyone else has a better idea, I'd love to hear it.
