Between the price of goo-stuff, or any solvent these days, and the extra time to use it, and paper towels or scrubbing pads, or whatever...
I think I'd rather spend the same money up front on buying the silver masking tape, and save myself all the time and mess on the clean cleanup.
Just one man's opinion.
3M even makes a black masking tape http://www.shop3m.com/60455064141.html?WT.z_bynt=1
another special product designed to resist UV and peel clean. They all
get ratty if they've been kept around too long though.
