Dennis; how long is "too long" leaving masking fluid on an unfinished painting?  Can you leave your work for a week or so and still be safe?

Hi Bella  :wave:   I've found on my Arches paper, I've sometimes had masking on for just shy of 2 weeks and had no trouble removing it as long as the paper is 100% dry. I would think it will depend more on the paper you are using.  :gl2:
Cheers, Val

Hi Reta, on my Oregon coast painting I had my masking fluid for almost a month. It was only on one spot that I had problems removing. That spot had very little masking fluid on it. I think that was the reason for. It acted like a glue. I hope I helped :)

Thank you, girls.  I started the last w/c lesson, but am practicing in wet in wet for the sky.  I already had masked in the mountain,........ and it is Arch's.
Thanks...I'll just keep my fingers crossed! ;)
