Just thought you might like to see the first results using this stencil paper. I obviously got less than ideal results from the cut - picture one is the painted/routed wood before applying the stencil paper, picture two is with the paper, 3 & 4 are the results. Actually around the manger the cut was pretty good, however in some of the smaller areas the paper disappeared during the cuts as it did in the middle of the A's and E's and L's in the wording. In some places, the paint actually got rolled up under the stencil paper on the "penisula's". I used pine for this project, and a R0.5 bit that only had five previous cuts on it so it was still rather new. The paper was smoothed down with a cookie dough roller (doesn't work well) and then with the back of my fingernail all over. I have been able to save the project for the most part by working with a Xacto knife around the edges, and putting small pieces over the "missing" areas and cutting with the knife. The nice thing about brush painting the original board means that I can use a very tiny brush to fix problems that occur with the spraying of gold in the manger and black in the lettering. I'm of two thoughts in the next project with this - one the up/down regular motion of the 1013 probably will not give you a perfect stencil. And two, I probably can improve on the results immensely by doing a better job of rolling down the paper in the beginning.
