Interesting to use on a black canvas before coating the total surface with other paints
Love this product
I love this pen. it is easy to use and helps create small areas where needed. Do not let it stay on the paper for long periods of time as it will not come off.

I use this masking in watercolor, and the tip delivery system is the best, fine lines and large areas are no problem. It peels easily, has a nice light color and the best part is that you don't need to use a brush to apply it! Other maskings that I have used seem to glob up on the brushes I use to apply, no matter what tips and tricks I have tried to keep that from happening. The only drawback is I think it contains latex, and that might be a problem for some people. I love this stuff, a little pricey but still cheaper that replacing watercolor brushes to put on the masking!
Behaved nicely when applied, masked perfectly and came off easily with no staining.
I've been using this for years

If you have ever used masking fluid with a brush, you know how frustrating it can be. This puts an end to that gooey mess. I especially like the very fine nib - you can actually mask off cactus spines, hairs and other detail. I use the larger nib for outlining a larger area I want to mask, then spread with a brush in the middle. Faster and much more accurate. One of my favorite tricks in my toolbox.
Achieve results in no time with this wonderful tool.

Masquepen Art Masking Fluid cuts down the time I spend with finely-detailed watercolor paintings. It goes on smoothly, giving me the results I want. It is an excellent product!
I have always had a problem with accuracy in using masking fluid. This product makes it easy. Just like using a pen.

I really love this masking fluid. Mainly because of the applicator tip. No more ruining paint brushes. This bottle has a nice tip that makes outlining or applying small amounts very easy. Then the cap has a pin in in that inserts in the tube when you close it up. It keeps the applicator tip cleaned out for the next use. It was also easy to remove. I actually covered quite a large area because I was painting several birch trees. It working quite nicely! I did have to leave it overnight to dry since I did such a large area but smaller area dry quickly.

Very cleverly designed product
from New York and California
I have used this fine line masking fluid on multiple watercolors for the past 2 years and just purchased a refill. The tip is a very fine hollow tube that you must very CAREFULLY insert the meddle into before screwing on the cap. This prevents the fluid from drying out in the tube and keeps it clean. It does take a bit of practice to control flow, but I find thick areas easy to paint down if necessary. Great for any painting that requires delicate highlights or distinct white areas to remain without pigment. I find this product indispensable and have recommended to many others.
