Finished up stacked text and started a xmas gift
Today I finished up the stacked text project for a VERY important client.
Then did another test with one of the plaques I bought a while back. The paint mask I bought has a bad issue of removing the finish from the mdf plaques, so sprayed one down with lacquer to try and keep it from pealing. I started to lay down the mask and realized it was going on wrong, so pealed it back and some finish came with it. So decide to use some paste wax to wipe down the plaque and it worked pretty well, made the mask stick, but not so bad that it pulled the finish.
So went ahead and did the xmas plaque and found my table is a little off in one area. I readjusted and found that it was a little too deep, so have some shimming to do with the cnc table. I went ahead and finished the piece anyway. I sprayed the snowflake one color and the text another. When I went to pull the mask, I got a lot of pealing of the plaque's finish around the lettering, looks like the paint I used there reacted with it, I had no pealing around the snowflake. In the end I did some touch-up using some gray primer and wiped it out , which did a decent job of salvaging the piece, but will try some different paint for any others I do.
Need to also adjust the layout of the snowflake for the next one.
