    I'm needing some feedback from more experienced users of paint mask for this job. What is the best type / brand?
    Restoration project with compound curves and needing to be as close to the original as possible.

    Thanks Tammie. That was what I thought. I'm not painting, just creating a digital file from the original & supplying the template. The customer is restoring 2 more kits and wants a cut mask. He is a professional painter and it's what he's asking for.

    Paper frisket works nice. Crinkle or flat. You can also cut it on sprocket fed plotters. Gives great sharp edges and is easy to peel.

    we use cast vinyl all the time as mask. That way its stretchable.
