Hi all,

I just acquired a product from my local hobby shop called Ambroid EZ Mask. It is described as "Peelable brush-on liquid mask" and contuinues on with saying "Brush on area to be masked, spray, let dry, peel off. For use on Plastic, Metal, Sealed Wood, and Most Non-Porous sufaces." Once I read that, I thought that I would be able to use it. So, I asked the owner of the hobby shop if it's compatible with Krylon. He answered yes, and continued by saying that all I had to do to get a nice, straight, cleaner line was to use my knife and trim it. He sold me on that point, so I bought the stuff. Not bad for $1.99.

Does anyone here have any experience with this product and/or recommendations for use?

Thanks,
Jason

I've used something similar on plastic models. It was especially good for aircraft canopies. Just paint it on. Let it dry. Then take a sharp x-acto and cut out the canopy frame. Peel off the areas you want to paint. Spray, let dry, peel. And, that's all there is to it. :)

Regards,
Todd

I can't remember the name of the stuff, but I used to use something similar to that way back in my RC car racing days. Used it to mask off areas of the car body for painting. I too am curious how it will work for your rocket.
