Quick Mask, Clear is a liquid mask from Wilder. This product is also available in red, green, blue and yellow. This clear liquid is item QM 01.

Clear Quick Mask...
...is contained in an eye-catching unique square necked 50 ml bottle, more like an artists' ink jar. The attractive label adds to the aesthetics, although text on the side is so small that I can not read it without magnification.

Quick Mask has a faint rubber odor but it doesn't offend me. After vigorous shaking the liquid mask was easy to brush on and control. I let it dry about 10 minutes before spraying it with acrylic paint. It dried overnight and I had no trouble removing it. The thicker I applied it the easier it was to remove. In some areas where it was so thin it resisted my peeling and rubbing, I used old acrylic paintbrushes to scrub it off.

Clean it off of your brush quickly as it dries like a ring of rubber and can be difficult to remove. I have used ammonia to remove similar products that dried but Quick Mask came off with just picking and peeling.

Quick Mask, Clear is very easy and effective to use. It dried quickly and peeled off easily. Just be careful not to let it dry on your brush.
