How to save your brushes from masking fluid.
by: Anonymous

Hi, I keep a bar of soap on my paint station and wet the brush and rub it into the soap thr frisket comes out easly just dip in water and it comes right off. I do a small area at a time clean my brush and then apply the soap again beforeI dip into the fluid. Using the same old brush is a good idea. They sell a bottle with a small opening on the end of the container with a needle like top that goes into the bottle to keep the opening from cloging up. I use it for very small areas like tree branches. It is called Masquepen and it is refillable.

Maybe you didn't know but any masking fluid can be diluted with ammonia if it becomes thick and heavy. One of my fellow artists, who is a chemist told me that ammonia is part of the formula. Don't use too much, but don't be discouraged if you open your bottle and find that it is really to thick to apply.

You should dip your brush into soapy water before using the frisket. And dip it again several times during your application. And wash it out thoroughly withe soapy water when finished.
Personally, I apply frisket with old brushes, a ruling pen, toothpicks, or anything that I cannot ruin. And personally, I almost never use it because the results are never as perfect as I had planned. It takes more time to correct the final product than it is worth.
