In order for my settings to make sense, here’s my Material:
I see some people recommending another material; but the shipping of $13+ for a single sheet was just more than I could do when Amazon delivers it in 2 days for no more than the purchase price.
I borrowed settings from
Cutting took two passes at 185/full - and even then it wanted a gentle pull to separate the cut piece from the original bit.
I took this tutorial for a spin; but I can’t seem to get rid of the edge cutting deeper than the gradient…
I engraved at 220/70 and 270 lpi - varying power.
I might have liked it to go a bit deeper; it took .03 off at the darkest…
It took 45 minutes (4" by 1.2") and left a furry oily residue that I tried to avoid handling due to other recommendations. Scrubbed with soap and water at which point I got my hands involved in the cleaning and they aren’t too stinky now.
Now I need to find an ink pad and see how it stamps before delivering it.
Wondering if I ought to do a curved stamp for something 4 inches wide, or whether it will be fine on a flat block.
