Temporary/removable liquid paint coverer
Posted 02 May 2016 - 10:14 PM
Now, I figured the hobby shop guy would know what I was talking about when I described it. He didn't. Then I tried to Google it, and found I don't have the words to describe it. So, I come to you all in hope someone can piece together my babble and offer a recommendation.

I think what you're looking for is called liquid mask. Google is turning up a large number of sites about it/selling it, but I didn't sort through the various applications/uses to find a modeling version.
EDIT: Ahh, here's a hobby related forum post about it, looking for the 'best' product.

I use Vallejo's liquid mask. (You can also find the same product called liquid frisket.) It works just fine, but be careful of scraping your underlying paint when you remove it and know that it can be a real pain in the rear to get out of recesses and details.

All of the above are types of liquid latex; you can buy liquid latex by the gallon in costume stores around Halloween. Like seriously, I have a small bottle I bought at Hobby Lobby and for the same price I could get a bottle about 4 times larger at the costume store.
It ruins paint brushes pretty good if you don't get the latex out before it dries.
I haven't had any problems removing it from a model. It comes off with friction. I'll grab any pieces I can and pull them off slowly, and then I'll rub the area with my finger for a bit to remove most of the rest. Sometimes you have to use something pointy like a tooth pick to remove the last few pieces in a recess. I have some Deadzone terrain that I airbrushed using some of this, and it turned out pretty well.
The Codex Astartes no doubt has guidance that covers that kind of situation - long, detailed advice that would essentially boil down to "shoot the choppy ones, chop the shooty ones".
