Question for painters new and advanced..

I recently painted several 1/10 scale buggy bodies using Bittydesign liquid mask. Apparently, I either reduced it too much or sprayed too thin. My guess is over reduced since it was an old bottle (I should have waited). Anyway, the thin masks made cutting and peeling a disaster. To get the mask to cut cleanly I had to apply a lot of pressure which ended up scoring the body. The mask just didnít want to cut or peel.

This brings me to my question in the feel for when liquid mask is actually cut and pressure. (I can feel cutting masking tape reasonably well.) What should it feel like when properly cutting liquid mask?

I back with metallic silver/ gun metal or pearl white. I haven't backed a body with black yet.
depends on how bright or dark the silver is.

As far as the painters mask, my local airbrush paint guy who does body's swears by it. I use tape but I'm old school. lol.

I prefer the feeling of cutting the design into tape as I know when I'm pressing too hard or light. I rarely score the body with tape. However, I'm struggling with knowing when liquid mask is cleanly cut without scoring the body. Any advice?

Hey there!

What a fantastic idea! An RC Airbrush Rendezvous sounds like an incredible opportunity to learn, share experiences, and connect with fellow painters and enthusiasts. The blend of basics, techniques, stencils, and vector art classes offers something for everyone, whether they're just starting out or looking to sharpen their skills. Count me in as interested! I'm sure many others would find value in this as well. It's a unique concept that could really bring the community together. Thanks for considering organizing something like this; I can't wait to hear more details! 🎨✈️
