Manufactured by Daniel Smith to the highest standards, Daniel Smith Masking Fluid flows easily, offers great coverage, and can be pulled cleanly from all watercolor surfaces as long as month or more after application.
This masking fluid may be applied with a brush or straight from the bottle. Off-white when wet, it dries to a transparent caramel color.
Five fine-point tips are included that transform the bottle into a drawing tool. They can be trimmed to any size you like. Use them to apply dots and lines or to preserve details and highlights with ease.

Comments about Daniel Smith Masking Fluid:
First time I've used it. It works. I had been warned about shaking it too hard, so i didn't. Took about 45 mins to dry, before i could paint over. That was my biggest problem.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

No I would not recommend this product.
The masking fluid came out of the bottle in a big glob at first, then worked ok, then globbed again. I was trying to mask a long line of surf, but I ended up having to redo the whole thing. The product comes with smaller tips, but does not give instructions on how to attach them, so they were worthless. Removing the dried fluid from the paper was also much more difficult than other masking fluid!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

An easy to use masking fluid
By I love watercolor!
from Madison, Wi
I'm fairly new to watercolor and masking. The fluid I have used previously is very messy and hard to apply. This product has an applicator that allows for tiny detail and no messy brush or goopy bottle to deal with. Also it came off in one piece. Thank you Daniel Smith.

Easy to use, great release
from Granite Bay, CA
I especially like the disbursement cap and extra tips. I found this helpful in application. The minimal contact with the air, kept the product fresh and I did not have any waste from 'early dry out' while still applying. The ease in removal is very good, with good paper response. I plan on buying this product again.

Nice product, applicator, etc, but I did stain my paper
from land of enchantment, NM
Howdy! I think that the fluid applied very easily, was happy with that, just be aware that it does stain the paper - at least it stained mine, I'll attach a photo for your convenience. I was using Fabriano Hot Press Watercolor Paper and Daniel Smith watercolors. The patterned wall paper design is where I used the masking fluid, you can see that the design is yellowish compared to the white of the paper. I had no problem removing the masking, no tearing of the paper, there were a few area that changed the absorbancy of the paper - coupled with the discoloration it left some area that were noticeable. If you can deal with that, then its outstanding.

where would I be without daniel smith
my watercolors are very specific with a significant amount of detail. the fluid is easy to use flows well and the applicator tips allow for masking fine detail. all DS products are well worth the price.

Best Masking Fluid

Much easier to acheive the effect I was hoping for
from Tracy, CA
I'm in the midst of making a lot of watercolor Christmas cards and discovered this last year. Not only is the product a great fluid, but the delivery tips makes making those hundreds of stars a breeze.
