    Larry, it will probably warp a bit, but it's thin enough I'd bet it won't move much. The light bulb should dry it out pretty quick too.

    Cool process and end product, but in my opinion, removing his face protection when making finishing cuts on a large thin piece is a sign that his reproductive organs are bigger than his brains.

    What a way to get "Lit up."

    I enjoyed the video, however I'm a safety nut so I did some scringing.

    Enjoy,
