  18. I am in need of Masking Fluid but found that The Oil Paint Store has it. Sa Deovir SM Manila noong nagtanong ako kung may masking fluid sila, sabi ng saleslady wala daw. Feeling ko wala siyang alam or ayaw niya lang tignan kung meron. Iba-iba kasi tawag sa Masking Fluid pero "wala" kagad sagot niya. Kakapasok ko lang nun sa store nila pero "wala" kagad sagot niya, edi okay. Nabadtrip lang ako. -_-

  19. may graphite powder kaya dyan...???

  20. naghahanap po ako ng MONSTER CLAY sa pilipinas lang sana o kaya ung CHAVANT clay, san po ba meron ?
