  • 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).

            Rodney, I will admit I'm in that group. The younger people are too busy with kids and getting a good foothold in careers to have time for hobbies. I know I didn't even start scrolling til my daughter went away to college. I've loved it ever since!

            Thanks Linda. I have tried a wide (pun intended) verity of thicknesses. I cut a Mother's Day rose that was at least 1 1/2 inches thick. That's where I learned that I was doing too much pushing against the blade and not letting the blade and saw do the work. The thin strips between frets would cut through...

            Hi Rodney! Nicely cut. I love the black backing especially.
            Your explanation for the thin 1/4" wood makes total sense when it comes to framing. I did a detailed Iwo Jima on 1/4" as well as 1/8" thick, both framed. The feedback I got from a 60-90 year old group of guys was the...
