3mm Bamboo Ply with Satin Varnish

3mm Bamboo Ply with Satin Varnish

 otrMaterial Thickness: 3mm  (thickness varies up to 0.5 mm either way between batches)

Lovely satin matte varnish finish. We do not recommend painting these pieces with acrylic paint pens  - there may  be adhesion issues - you would need to conduct your own testing with paints.

This lovely material is best suited to items that you would like the wood finish to be the start of your piece.

Deep etching  is not suitable to the satin varnish as there is no contrast when engraved - engraving results in a white patchy finish. This material is best suited to SOLID  silhouette  shapes or line engraving detail as it does produce a nice contrast.

Bamboo is a natural grass and every batch will differ greatly order to order.

Growing conditions and weather can effect every harvest of Bamboo.

From Order to Order  - you will notice grain will be different, some sheets can be textured some sheets can be smooth, colours will vary and there can be bands of different shades within each laser cut piece which can result in different etched effects order to order. This is the nature of Bamboo Ply.

When you order our Bamboo Ply you are accepting that you are fully aware of the advantages and disadvantages.

Bamboo sheets contain wood knots randomly placed throughout the bamboo sheet. It is not possible to avoid knots.

Bamboo is a grass there will be varying lines and textures on each sheet and greatly varies from batch to batch.

During cutting, marks caused by the hot smoke will leave a brown edge along the cut and engrave lines. This may be removed by using a cotton bud dipped in methylated spirits.

You may need to hand finish further using a fine grade sand paper  to remove small burn marks. 

Bamboo sheet colours can vary from a light honey to darker honey colour so please be aware that every order will vary.

Comes with a protective coating on either one or both sides that will need to be peeled off.

When you receive your order, remember to peel the paper film off BEFORE you glue on your findings. Please check if you shapes have paper on one or both sides.
