: Wite-Out in place of Miskit?

Hello, all,

I have pure latex masking fluid, and while I'm not suee if I have a latex allergy, it stings my fingers to the touch and is hard to peel off through vinyl gloves. I had an idea about using Wite-Out instead.

My only concern is how it would affect the grain. I'm using an Arches bloc.

In most of those ammonia's the solvent. You may be especially sinsitive. Try using a clean eraser to demask. I prefer very soft ones that don't damage the paper. Also, papers that are not strongly sized or have loose fiber often do absorb the latex too much & are damaged. Test.
White-out.... Uh, no. If you want to go opaque use paint... Acrylic or quache.
