I still had it floating around, and had not gotten around to fixing the black parts where the transfer didn’t work as well, so i masked it, and traced the black bits with a marker. Then I used the trace feature in the GFUI to scan the tracing on the masking… never mind that I have this as a digital file, that’s not the point.
Trace seems to shift an eighth of an inch. Hmm. something to remember and adjust for when placing the file… for now. Hopefully that will get better.
But that’s still not the point.
Here’s the point:
I used 75LPI for the engrave (of the trace (of the trace (of the transfer (of the print)))).
If I had been a little more careful pulling the masking off, I could have gotten the entire image. I wasn’t careful, because I wasn’t expecting to find what I found.
I found a stencil.
This is similar to the screen-print technique that a few others have done, but engraved into the TransferRite 592U transfer paper that I had used to mask the .114 BB plywood from Amazon that I was using
I peeled the rest a little more carefully, slapped it onto some scrap and hit it with a spraycan.
It worked surprisingly well.
