Re: Help With Painting Using Mask

I followed the same process. I used a small stiff brush for the stippling and a small brush to touch it up.

Re: Supplier of Paint Mask?

Connie is going to cut them, She is backlogged and they will not be available until October. Not an issue as the project has a way to go.
