Thread: Cling Wrap for masking

  1. #1

    Default Cling Wrap for masking

    I just received some Shapeways planes and am considering using Saran Wrap or other cling wrap to mask areas of the model before using spray paint. I have painters tape from Home Depot but it is a little thick and may be difficult to use on a Shapeways model. I thought cling wrap would be able to fit into the nooks and crannies to protect them from the paint.

    Any thoughts?
    So how many books are in your personal library?

    Lots of luck!

    When I tried it, the only thing cling film would stick to was ME!

    I have used "Frisk" Draughtsmans' masking film with some success.

    I use Tamiya masking tape for hard edges and rolls of Blu-tak for soft edges.

    I just discovered that I have a bottle of this, but I haven't ever tried it.
