I’m just getting started on working with paper. I sacrificed a piece of draftboard to use as an adhesive surface to hold down everything. It works well enough for paper that is dark and only one side will be seen but I get MDF residue on the back side.
I’m curious to hear from people using the seklema who do things that are lacy in some fashion – how easy is it to get all the leftover little bits off the mat? With the board I can just scrape them right off, but it seems like it might be harder with the gel-like mat. Do you use something like masking to pull it up, or is there an effective method of scraping pieces off? I don’t want to invest in one if it’s a pain to remove little leftover bits.
