Good product: while it lasts
from Hansville, WA
Comments about Art Maskoid:
Be sure to use an old brush. It is very difficult to get the rubber-like material out of the brush even soon after use. I find this, like other similar products, seems to have a "shelf life". After a while it tends to dry up and becomes difficult to use, even when attempting to thin with water. I only use it when absolutely necessary. It does take some practice to do detailed outlines of the "whites" with this masking fluid.I recommend trying it out to see what you think.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Fairly easy to use. There is a problem with the rate it dries up on the brush. The brush gets hard and it is difficult to apply further. It easy to remove when necessary and it leaves no color residue.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great bargain and good quality.
from Anchorage, AK
I purchased watercolor palettes for a class I'm teaching - I could not find anything local that would work. Plus I stocked up on paper and several tubes of paint, all at significant savings over local pricing. Well worth the cost of shipping.

from Cossayuna New York
this product does not spread evenly and gums up as you put on thicker layers.

I'm using this product as a mask for acrylic paint on canvas. Works surprisingly well.

As the manufacturers of Art Maskoid for over 70 years, we would like to respond to the comments created by others. First, we would like to say that we always stand behind our product, and should any of the people who had a problem with the product had made us aware of it, we would have been happy to replace it. We would also like to note that our product works best on higher grade papers and we recommend DeArcher's. Like any product, Art Maskoid does not last indefinitely and is affected by the environment it is kept in. Therefore, if a product was delivered to a distributor in the extreme cold of winter or extreme heat of summer, dependent on where it sat on a truck or on a shipping dock, or even if it sat on a shelf for a long period of time, it's durability could be affected.However, above all, our company believes in this product and will do everything we can to make sure that every customer is satisfied. We do not believe other companies still maintain this business philosophy. We appreciate the feedback and will use it to improve our business practice. As a company that has been in business since 1941, we believe in the integrity of our product and look forward to serving others.
Not So Nice
Dried up to a solid within a year and stains papers. Frustrating for students to use, when they expect it to remain white.
Merchant response: Latex based masking fluids have a recommended shelf life of one year. Storing upside down, in a temperature stable environment, away from direct sunlight may help improve the shelf life, however, the more it is opened and used, the shorter that shelf life will be.

I couldn't use it. The jar was sealed and it said liquid. But when I opened it - the frisket was solid like a jarred piece of solid rubber. I won't buy again. I shipped it back for a refund. I'll get something better at a local store.
Stains your paper!

Product does prevent watercolor from penetrating through; however, product leaves a yellow stain.

This product is my choice for masking watercolor or acrylics used in watercolor techniques. Always make sure you use an old brush to apply and before dipping the first time, put the old brush into a mixture of 80% liquid dish detergent and 20% water, which will make the cleanup easier for any brush used.This product may stain the background paper if used in a diluted strength; so use caution. Would be best to practice techniques on a practice paper first before applying to final painting.
