  • acrylic mirror

    Ok,I have recieved my acrylic mirror in the mail. Its the kind with the grey back. I have the right blades for cutting it,and I know about puting tape on the stuff,but, I also know I cant put tape on the grey without risking peeling off the mirror when removing the tape,and I know i dont want to scratch that grey off either. So,if I put the acrylic on a sheet of cardboard or posterboard to cut it,is that gonna be sufficient?Its nothing detailed,just basic cutting of shapes. Thank ya, dale

    The blue or purple painter"s tape is fine or you can place a piece of poster board as such. That stuff is tuffer than you think. Try a sample piece first and test before committing to the final piece.

        I clean it up and stuff regularly. If I do a lot of typing, spreadsheets, etc., I use the computer as itโ€™s faster for me but take the tablet to shows and markets to post from there. I also use my rapid resizer program on the tablet when I want to change a pattern and am downstairs. I really need a...

        Rolf, if your Picassa file works I want it!!! They cram so much into newer programs that it just complicates things and takes away intuitive stuff. Thank you for checking!
