Glad Press and Seal

Recommended Posts

Don't know if this has been mentioned before but I tried using this stuff on a large area on a model after I did the close masking and it worked very well .

Yep!.... I bought 2 rolls of that stuff just for masking.....

It helps out a lot if you burnish the area you want to trim with a "sharp" #11 blade.... Use a tooth pic and a q-tip to burnish before and after the cut with a blade..... 😉

I only use it to do large sections after I have done the close masking with good tape. It sure helps and saves time for me.

I've had it leave a residue. I hope you don't have that issue.

I've heard of that issue as well.

 

Don't know anything specific, but I have never used it.

Masking paper and tape have always worked well for me.

I've never thought of using press and seal type stuff. It one might want to make sure a painted surface has cured well before burnishing down the film.

I normally use Tamiya tape for defined edges, with blue painters tape and wax paper for covering large areas.

Tried it once, years ago (on a recommendation for a modeling forum).  It left lots of adhesive residue after I removed it.  I tossed the roll in the trash - never again.  I use Parafilm.

As do I.  Same problem several years back
