Make certain parts unaffected by sculpting brushes?

Hey guys, just registered to this forum. So I’ve been working on this outfit for quite a while now, I’m trying to inflate the skirt behind the tails, but whenever I try to do that I keep inflating the tails along with the skirt because I can’t get the right camera angle to just sculpt the skirt.

Anyone knows how to make certain parts unaffected by sculpting brushes? The tails are in their own material slot so it should be easy for me to select them. Thanks.

Use the mask brush (M) to mask the faces you don’t want to be affected by sculpting
