Okay I have to Post quick - still have tons to do for Farm Tomorrow.

I just tried this On one Kin and it worked Most Excellent.

I was in Office Max getting some things Lamented.
And I Decided to Try this Out.

I bought a Pack of Avery Full Sheet Sticker Paper. (15 Sheets to a Pack) $12.99
Number #3383

Image


I printed one of Zombies Cut-Outs on a Sheet.
Peeled the Paper off the Back, and Slapped it on the Gutted Kin.

I then Carved right through the Paper = NO Problem. Worked GREAT.

Because this Worked SO Good - I just ordered 200 Sheets from these Guys.
100 sheets = $10.50 a Box (I'll Have to test these when they come in)
I'm sure they are thinner pound Paper (but thats More the Better)

Click Here to Order

Again this Brand Sticker Paper - has NOT been Tested as of Yet.


One Suggestion is to use a Saw Blade with Little Teeth, this will stop the paper from Tearing.

Get the Saw Blades at Home Depot or Lowes and Use the xacto Handle .
Follow the Tutor on How to make these.

Here's PIX:

After you Remove the Remaining Sticker (which comes off VERY EASY)
Just go Over the Whole Carving with a Damp Towel, or Damp paper Towel)

Thanks Guys - Been wanting to find a really easy way to transfer for the longest time.
And This Worked out Great!

I can't wait to try out the cheaper ones I ordered, when they come in.
If those work, I will be ordering a ton more (after the season).

My Plan is to use this method for cut-outs only.
I will still use transfer paper for the shaded Patterns.

But still - this will save SO Much Time.

OH and I carve this ZP Pattern every Week, and Use it as a Bowl for my hand-outs. :grin:
I line the inside with a plastic Bag, And just drop the cards inside.


Post your Results using the sticker Paper. ;)

I tried it out on two different Gemmy foamies with great success! It comes right off wiithout peeling paint. I did a Jay Ball pattern of the Logan Utah LDS Temple on a white Gemmy and I did St0neys cut through Frankenstien on an orange. I timed the whole Frankenstien project. 2.5 minutes to remove black line. 5 minute to apply sticker, 10 minutes to exacto and remove sections, (old habits die hard and for me it produces much cleaner lines.), and 10 minutes to cut out with dremel and drill bit. Total=27.5 minutes.

Cool Doh !

Glad you tried it on a fake - I was worried it would pull the paint off.

(Had that happen with the Silver sticker they put on the bottom - on a few kins)
Looks like we Have a Winner for Real and Fake.

I did (3) More Real today using the sticker paper, and Same Results ;)

Doh:

I do have just one question, And just seeing if you tried it.
Now that we "Both" experimented with the sticker paper.

If your Sold on still using an xacto knife, why not just use the hot knife?
(I still want to try a Full cut-out pattern using the hot knife)
As of now I only used the thing to remove the Bottom - to get to the black line.

And want to try it on the Sticker Paper (just using the hot knife)

And if your content with using the x-acto, Seems the Hot knife would be the way to go.
(It's Just a HOT X-acto)
So going my Your times (10 minutes to X-acto + 10 Minutes to Dremel Cut)

this Carve then could only take 10 Minutes total for the cut outs with the HOT X-acto - ;)

I'll Try it myself tonight or Tomorrow. :grin:
