I have been using the Easy Shelf Adhesive Shelf Paper with good success. However on some projects I get a lot of shreading of the shelf paper to the point that I just remove it and then paint.
I see on Amazon they have Oramask 813 and 811. Which Oramask would be best for vcarving and other wood projects that will be painted (the reason to mask).
I just want to try the Oramask to see if it is better than the cheap and readily available Easy Liner Adhesive Shelf Paper. I always use a J roller on the shelf paper to make sure I get good adhesion.
I have heard that you get good results by warming up the vinyl and waiting a day after adhering it to your work piece, before cutting it on the cutter.
I’ve used the 813 for years now.
You might want to try spraying a little polycrilic onto the work piece (if its wood) to give the vinyl a better chance of sticking.
I also used the reusable vinyl from Oracal, but I have never reused it. It sound wasteful but I have used it on softer wood like pine, or painted pieces. The lower tack is better for not tearing up paint or soft grain.
Hope this helps!
I use 813 when I’m planning on painting inside a carve on a finished piece. Just make sure the finish had cured before you apply.
I never had good success with tape or shelf lining vinyl…albeit I’ve meant to try the duck version.
I ordered some Oramask 813 and used it last night. This was a vcarve with #301
bit. The first pass left fuzzies but on subsequent passes it was smooth.
The wood was red oak with mahagoney gel stain. I will paint the carving today.
So I got the Oramask painted today. Turned out pretty good. There was a small amount of lift off of the finish. The piece was stained with gel stain and then about 2 coats of wipe on poly satin then masked and carved. After the acrylic paint dried I peeled the mask off.
