So, I have a number of stains I’d like the proofgrade to absorb, but I’m getting terrible results with how I’m sanding it.
Has anyone else had luck sanding off the finish off a whole board? What grit? How long did it take you? Did you use plywood or hardwood? Were you happy with the results?
I have a stain (Unicorn Spit) that is something in between a stain and a paint. I’ve sanded off the finish (to the point I can’t see any shiny on the board). Stained, sealed and engraved or cut… and when I pull the masking off it’s pulling up the color as well. Which leads me to think that it is just sitting on top and not really staining the wood.
It’s expensive stuff, and so is the PG. I’ve been buying the PG, in part, because of the already applied masking. A large roll of that stuff is expensive! I just wish it came unfinished.
