A technique using a child´s white glue for hard edge masking.
The glue was applied using its own bottle fine tip.

Now,after painting (diluted Tamiya XF-2) and de-masking:

1)Dilute a bit the already low adhesion white glue,for easier after painting removal;
2)Do not put into recesses and crevices,for it becomes harder to remove without damaging the base layer;
3)Always use over a generous gloss coat on the base color.
Hope it is useful!
That is really cool! Thanks for sharing the technique.
Glad to share.
Thank you for that advice. How do you remove the white glue?
Blunt tip wooden stick.Parallel to the surface and with great care - as it begun to be lifted,you can use tweezers to pull everything off the surface.
Thank you for your reply and advice.
I'd used various techniques before, but never this one - good idea!
Wow. What an outstanding idea, thanks for sharing.
never heard of this one, thanks for posting, i will certainly try this one
I agree with everyone above... what a novel idea. So simple ! Thanks for sharing this thought with us. I'm anxious to give it a try.
Marcus, nunca vi ninguém usar cola branca dessa forma, vou experimentar num modelo velho para ganhar pulso 😉 obrigado!
Neat and simple. And still no one here seems to ever thought of using white glue this way (myself included). A big thank you for sharing!
Thank you all,my pleasure.
However,this technique will only work with low adhesion glue,and diluting it is also important.
Other common brands WILL NOT WORK.The adhesion is simply too strong,and whenn peeling it off it will remove all painting layers to the bare plastic.
Happy to be useful guys,all the best!
What kind of paint are you working with? Acrylics?
Both Acrylics and Enamels David.
That's pretty cool I've been thinking about doing a couple soviet P-40s in winter camo. this may be pretty helpful.
My pleasure David.
