If he uses it for the same thing that I do, I use it to wrap around wine bottles, glasses, and cups as an alternative to masking the whole thing in tape.

Kerri,

Do you need several layers of plastic wrap , or will one do the trick?
Thanks!

Hi after I apply the resist I mark the outline of it with a silver marker (see lines) then I wrap the whole bottle With the plastic wrap a few times. then I cutout where the resist is I cut up and over then down (e-xacto blade) only cut on the resist do not scratch the glass. then I pull it down over the bottom then I tape off the resist with two inch tape. (I use a head light AAA batteries to see what I am doing) for the cost of 3000 ft at 8 dollars is great less head ache good to protect anything you work on. Video coming soon check your local listings.

Jack,

That is great information -- sounds fairly easy and way cheaper than using tape. Thanks for sharing your technique!
