  • Qustion for Carter

    Hi Carter
    I see in your tutorial that you do not spray the finish if you have a glossy photo.
    1) Why don't you spray a glossy photo?
    2) Do you spray all other photo's with different finishes sush as a photo printed on matte photo paper?
    All others please join in too.
    Thanks for your help.

    hi Mark...i always spray my photos with krylon triple thick glaze spray....for my puzzles i use my own image printed off of my hp printer......i have found that if you don't spray the image it will scratch......you can even use windex on a cloth to clean the image if it has been sprayed....

    hope this helps

      A specific answer to yourt question: When I first started cutting puzzles (18+ years ago) a friend of my son's in California asked if I would cut a family photo. He sent it to me, I sprayed it and the images in the photo ran all over each other. Embarrassed, I had to ask him for another one and I never tried it again.

      With a glossy photo, I've never felt I really needed a spray. And the non-glossy ones: I don't make puzzles from them.

      I probably could spray them now but I just don't want to risk it.....

          Not trying to sound like any kind of expert at this, but I find spraying glossy photo's doesn't leave as nice of a finish as leaving it alone. The are fairly difficult to hurt - I even tried nail polish remover on one that I had accidentally gotten glue where I didn't want it. It didn't work, but neither did the remover hurt any of the picture (I figured once I had injured the photo in the first place I'd experiment with the rest).

            SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

            Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

            Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...
