    Now that I moved on to rubber cement yes you use a paintbrush and either paint it on or throw it on.

    The thicker your second coat, the easier it is to remove - I just have to scratch an edge with my fingernail and then it comes right up.

    no, what I did was seal it once, then use paint thinner to get rubber cement off (very sticky once its been heated by the way) and then resealed once I had removed the rubber cement

    I used maskit the other day for a paintball marker and I was sitting there for 2 h peeling the darn stuff off with a dental pic. Did the rubber cement easily peel off?

    about 30 minutes for most of my bodies. (one took 2 hours but it was kind of an experiment)
