3mm Cedar Ply with Satin Varnish
Material Thickness: 3mm (thickness varies up to 0.5 mm either way between batches)
Our Varnished laser plywood has an A-A grade finish, meaning that both sides of the sheet are high quality both sides with varnished satin look finish and PE protective film.
Stunning 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 peice.
Deep etching is not suitable to the satin varnish as there is no contrast when engraved - engraving results in a white finish. This material is best suited to SOLID shapes. Line engraving does produce a nice contrast.
Ply sheets contain wood knots randomly placed throughout the bamboo sheet. It is not possible to avoid knots.
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.
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.
