I’ve read through some great tutorials and advice for settings on non PG leather, but noticed there’s a blurry line about masking. I understand leather is a hit or miss deal for settings due to it’s makeup and I’m sure that could still be the consensus, but I’m getting ready to do an engrave on an art sketch book from Hobby Lobby (so I can always buy another if it totally screws up I guess). My main question is since I’m going to do an engrave and no cutting should I mask or not?
I believe I’ll go with the settings that @jules discussed
The engrave will have both large burn sections and fine thin details. I’m worried about the char and being able to clean it off, but I’ll take the trade off of char over the gummy residue of masking.
