Good overall frisket
from Centennial, CO
Comments about Iwata Original Frisket Film:
I have been using frisket rolls on my airbrush artwork for nearly three decades. This seems to have just the right amount of tack for the substrate and media that I use.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Clemson, SC
I had some old sheets of Frisket that used to work fantastically well; you could leave it on your artwork for days and it would come out clean without leaving any residue. I ran out of my old supply and bought this assuming it worked the same way it used to in the old days; it doesn't. If you leave it on your artwork for more than 24 hours, it only peels off by leaving all the glue behind on your artwork. As I am using it to paint with oils, I need to leave it on the substrate for more than 24 hours, rendering it unusable. Don't buy it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

By Ink man
I've been an illustrator for 30 years and have seen products change, this being one of them. You used to be able to choose low or high tack in this brand and now it's just one product. I always purchased the low tack Mat finish because I work in watercolor and gouache on illustration board. It was always plenty sticky until recently. It has a tendancy to fly off the surface if it's a small coverage area. I'm still using the product but sometimes it's not tacky enough which is why I stock 3 different friskets. I recommend using different ones for different tasks. Some hold watercolor washes back and some high tack brands hold up better with more delicate cutting patterns. Removal can be tricky with the high tack products so get some Bestine adheasive remover to flow under the frisket as it's removed. It doesn't harm water based mediums and dries immediately with no rings or discoloration. Without it, you can tear the board surface or get undesireble residue left on the board. I hope this helps in selectin the product.

Warning... leaves glue residue!
By Andy artist
This frisket is horribly flawed. It left so much glue residue on my illustration board, that it ruined my painting. The glue was invisible and could not be detected until after I had applied paint to it.I later discovered that this is a re-branded product made by the same manufacturer who makes frisket for all the companies selling frisket in the US.

from balto/wash area
I've been an illustrating now for over 40 years, and over a period of 10 years I've noticed that the companies that make frisket film are making it with too much tack.The problem is the glue resdue will adhere to the painted airbrused or painted area of the illustration, Which is a nightmare to get off!!!!Beware illustrators! Use only low tack film that WILL NOT LEAVE ANY GLUE RESIDUE TO THE YOUR ILLUSTRATION WHEN YOU PEEL UP THE FILM.

Not tacky enough for me
I have used a similar film before that was tackier and better for my purposes, this one isn't tacky enough. It may be a great product for others, but not for me. Now I am trying to figure out which one I did use so that I can buy the best one for my needs.
