Re: clear masking glue? [not spam]

When I first read John's email I thought he was somehow recommending SPAM
as a solution to this problem. The kind in the tin.

Seriously though, have you tried a teeny-tiny square or strip of paper
tape? I know it is safe for film and peels off easily, but not sure how
it would react to whatever chemicals you are using in the process. A test
strip wouldn't hurt. It's a major pain to cut a square and apply it
straight if you are using super 8 though, (I recommend one of those
magnifying glasses on a swivel lamp arm, some tweezers and an exacto
knife.) But it comes in very narrow widths already which can be trimmed
easily. I'd love to see what you come up with in the end.

best of luck!
