    Coloring Rubber Cement

    I am using rubber cement to partially cover my print (FB Matte) so that when I tone it won't affect the area with the cement.

    A big problem is that some of my rubber cementing is very intricate and the material being basically milky clear and when dried clear, it's hard to spot a thin area or area that didn't get covered. I'd like to color the rubber cement but with a material that won't color the paper that is being applied to. I'm using brush and toothpick to do this and a magnifier but I'm still missing spots.

    Can anyone think of a coloring material that would do it? I'm thinking any kind of dye wouldn't work but fine colored powder that is NOT soluble might. Problem is, I don't know what that might be.

    Help!

    Why not save yourself some headaches and just use Friskit?

    There used to be a product called Maskoid that was ruby red which was perfect, but like many obscure analogue photo aids, it is sadly long gone.

    Re: Frisket,

    I can. In fact, I'll look for that brand. What I found was not colored, so I just used rubber cement.

    M. Lointain:

    Can you give me a product spec of some kind? I found products called Art Maskoid and Photo Maskoid but they are gray. I'd prefer red.

    That looks like the stuff but I hope they still have it. The page is dated 2005.

    If I have understood the literature correctly Fotospeed Fotomask is red. Is this particular Fotospeed product not available in the U.S.?
