Re: [IP] Re: Mastisol



My son uses skin-tac H,  which is also just like water, we like it a little
better, than mastisol, he applies it with a Q-tip, you can put several coats
on if you wish and it doesn't run all over.   I put it in a smaller
container so you can dip the Q-tip in .                Bonnie,  Mom to Keith
