    I have a print that would benefit from masking of a small area during toning. I know there is Fotomask
    available, but I can't find it locally and I find it rather hard to justify the expense + ORMD shipping when I want
    to use it for just one print. So, the question is, are there any alternatives I could use to get similar effect?
    Thank you for your help!

    Thank you MaximusM3! I went to a craft store yesterday, but they have not heard of Frisket. However, they did have some watercolor masking liquid which I bought and will try for my next session. Hopefully that will work. Thanks!

    Let us know how you get on with watercolour masking liquid. It does look like the kind of stuff that should work and if it does it is probably cheaper.

    Thanks
