I don't remember who posted it either but it's always nice when someone gives thanks for advice given that works for them.
I know my posts about sandblast glass etching, not wood carving would have mentioned the use of contact paper. I used beige or light green. Not white because the brightness will wear on your eyes.
Good to hear your success with contact paper.
All my life I have had people tell me I couldn't do something. Eventually I found out they couldn't do it, and since they considered themselves smarter than me, they figured if they couldn't do it, I couldn't do it. To make it funny, would do something, then when they said I couldn't do it, would show them I already had.I started glass etch about forty years ago using contact paper. In fact, went that route about four months ago for some entry doors for some people.
It's funny, I've talked to some remarkable artists who all but called me a liar for saying I use it.
LOLIt's funny, I've talked to some remarkable artists who all but called me a liar for saying I use it. I tried to explain that I keep the pressure around 45 lbs, unless shading, when I drop to half that. They couldn't explain why I could do all but the heavy carving with it.
Ask them to explain how the glass of payphone booths in windy locations get sandblasted.
See attached. Low pressure, yeah!
How does this brand come off? Does it leave a sticky residue?I do scroll saw work as well as free hand sign making and use Duck Brand shelf liner clear. It does a great job and is very cheap.
It comes off really easy and leaves no residue. Try it I think you will really like it. What kind of projects do you have in mind to try it on?How does this brand come off? Does it leave a sticky residue?
