Did you use a down cut bit? An up cut bit tends to lift the Oramask.
As long as I use V-bit, down cut or the two flute straight I don’t have any issues.
A few new ones
I am trying to stretch my techniques. Did you spray the panel first with the black paint, then oramask carve and paint the orange then remove oramask?
Excellent work as usual Steve. The Gun Calendar looks awesome.
I will answer that question because I asked Steve how he did it. Engraved the gun calendar first, Then “painted the copper and brushed in the black acrylic paint then wiped off the black with a damp rag wrapped around a piece of wood”.
Like Russel explained you will have a last chance after it is 100% dry you can repeat with damp rag or a rag lightly dampened with mineral spirits in the same way if you missed anything. The trick is to figure out how many raps of rag around the wood and wrap it tight! I buy bags of rags at Lowes they look like white t-shirt scraps. once you figure it out it is easy to do
Glad to see the finished project, I know how much time you invest in each of these and it is very nice to see them all together. As always your work is very impressive!
What font is the large G in the Gibson wall-hanger? I like that look and it would work for me.
i sent you a message with the link to my file I believe I bought them off etsy for $2
Are you able to share the file or link for that gun logo calendar?
@SteveMoloney Did you carve the gun calendar on the PVC?
Nope MDF, how is Phil doing these days?
@SteveMoloney. Doing well. My YouTube channel is going crazy. Growing fast, I’m doing projects both on the XCarve and other projects as well. I see you are still doing amazing projects.
thanks! I have been watching the videos but my Ipad is old enough I cant update anything and now the version that is on it for youtube I cant see the comments or respond anymore.
is there a website that helps you make signs or do you do it from scratch
@JohnLoera Exactly what are you trying to accomplish? I’ll help if I can. I have many videos that help get people started.
Google, Etsy, Facebook groups. A lot of them are done in Easel depending on what it is. I snag pieces and parts were I can get them and use Easel to make them into what I want. Hope that helps. As Phil Lunsford stated his videos will help guide you through the process. Steve
Easel have an Image Trace app, play with it:
As Steve mention, you search for something you can use, import, adapt and carve it
