  • 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).

            New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

            It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

            Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

            I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
            on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...
