Thanks! Unfortunately I don’t have venting supplies or a space inside so I have my forge in the garage, and this extreme heat keeps shutting me down! But if I get up and get out there early, and I already have the design and material loaded the night before, I can just turn it on and print. I can usually get one card done before it’s already 100 degrees at 0700 and decides it needs a siesta. Fans and ice packs help, but only barely. They range in the 27 minute ballpark to print and cut all three layers, then maybe 1-1.5 hours to color, I can usually get one done before I have to switch focus to other life aspects.
Designing I do in the evenings, and I use pretty much the same process for all of them as far as tracing/breaking apart/slicing/recombining, etc. Once I find images that I like, design only takes about 10 minutes. With designing 5 or 6 in 2 hours at night, but only getting one done a morning, it didn’t take long for me end up with about 60 designs that I still haven’t made yet!
I’ll probably take a break from them when I run out of draftboard (I have one sheet left and that’ll get me 10 more cards if my eyeballs are good that day, I squeeze them in right, and I have a whole heap of faith, trust and pixy dust in my alignments). After that, I’m at the mercy of whenever I place and get my next supply order. My marker tips are shredding too, but it’s school supply time, so that works out perfect to restock.
