Iv looked and looked, so Im sorry if this has been answered before. I know acrylic will work, and thats my second best option as of now. But will wood that has been pre-stained, before cutting, with alcohol ink be ok to be engraved and cut as well? I really LOVE the way the wood grain shows through.
Also if you have done it, was is your favorite type of alcohol ink, and favorite way?
Not a problem. I pre-paint and clear coat birch all the day.
Alcohol ink markers are fantastic but I would recommend masking your material before engraving or cutting. The char from the laser will be extremely difficult to remove from the alcohol ink marker projects.
