Well, I have been absent for a while, but I was able two find to items that work well for me. Here they are:

- PIK-UP rubber cement eraser by Best-Test, or Glue runner eraser by Ad Tech. Both of them remove the masking fluid exceptionally well! No more finger rubbing. You'll find them(one or the other) on Amazon, Walmart, Michael's and locally at Pat Catan

- Ultra-fine Tip Applicator Bottle by Darice. I am using as a masking fluid applicator. The bottle has a very thin tube where the fluid is coming out from the bottle. once I am done with application I put a needle type stopper into that small tube to avoid the masking fluid to become solid. I do not have to put back the masking fluid back into the original bottle. It can stay in this applicator. I have it there for a week now and does not become solid. I bought it on line from "ConsumerCrafts.com" I believe that they may be available on the paper craft section of Jo-ann
I hope I was able to help, Doina ;)

I have a packet of three (different size nozzles) that sound similar to yours Doina. Haven't tried them out yet, will have to see if there is a stopper for them. I hope they work as well as yours do.  :pray:   
Cheers, Val

If you don't have a stopper try to insert in the smallest one an extra long thick pin.

Thanks for the tips, Doina. Much appreciated. I have been using metal styluses for applying masking fluid when I need thin lines, and they work well, too.
