...and we're not talking deodorant here Smile. I'm trying to gaff some cards and wondering what are the pros and cons of r**ghing stick versus a spray can (which is what I've used in the past). The spray seems to leave a visual hint when looked at in the right light---I'd like to avoid that.

Thanks!

A stick will be worse at leaving visual evidence.

Back in the olden days, we used liquid ruff--g stuff and a cotton ball. Smile

I may try spraying onto a cotton ball first and seeing if that smooths out the texture a bit. Thanks.

Use a VERY THIN coating at first, let it dry thoroughly and in the unlikely event this doesn't do the job, apply another THIN coating.

Also be aware many have discovered it is more useful to coat a limited area as opposed to the entire surface of the card(s).

If you ever use a liquid like we did in the old days of roughing, do not use cotton balls. Whatever you use, make sure it is lint-free. I used lint-free cheese cloth.

Check out this thread for another alternative. (page 32)

I use Liquitex Matte Medium in a plastic bottle and apply it with a cotton ball. I found the stuff at Hobby Lobby, years ago.
