Re: Masking

I remember buying something in college that was called Friskit or something
along that line. Works similiar to rubber cement. I haven't used it in a
dozen years so I have no idea how much it costs, especially for an entire
class. I have students create stencils for several projects - not a great
alternative but it is cost effective. You could also use clear contact paper
and cut off the excess with X-acto knives if the class is mature enough.
