Today for the first time I attempted to cut my first liquid mask in my Traxxas slash 4x4 clear body. OMG it was so hard to move the exacto knife along certain edges straight.
Is there an easier technique to cut the mask smooth edge with no jaggedness.
Some if the edges are not straight. I want it to look perfect.
Putting down another mask layer. Augh!!
Appreciate any input.
Maybe using a Dremel with a cutting disc? Probably be a little straighter.

This guy is awesome. Watch all of his videos, well worth the time and to be honest they are entertaining.
And here's my first paint job, probably 10-12 hours in it. Good luck and post pics when you finish.

Biggest thing is to get comfortable. Track your line first without cutting anything to make sure you won't bump your hand or get your hand and arm hung up on the body while tracing the majority of the line. Don't use too much pressure either just a light scoring with the blade will cut through the LMF.
You'll find also that the tracing, masking, and prep work take longer than the actual painting part.
