Hi Workdesk friends.
Here we are with yet another Wednesday.
There's no rest for the wicked or so they say Lol!
Angela here to show you:
"What's on my workdesk this Wednesday".
If you don't know what this is all about then please visit the
Stamping Ground and our dear host Julia will explain and all will be revealed.
Anyway back to my desk Lol!
Last week I mentioned Spray M Boss, it is said to soften card but also bind the fibres so that you can emboss and cut even thin paper and card which might otherwise rip and embossing on card is deeper and die cutting easier.
At this stage I am not sure what is actually in it but it says non toxic. You can see the bottle on my desk, red top, right-hand side.
Card sprayed and drying out.
You can spray card with water but it needs to remain damp which might be a problem with electronic die machines, with Spray M Boss you let it dry and it still works to cut and emboss better, according to the instructions.
Many of my lovely WOYWW friends wanted to know about it so decided to test it, I don't want them disappointed Lol!
So here are the results. First I used Centura Pearl card.
- With Spray M Boss - Cut with two runs: The cut looks very clear.
- Without Spray M Boss - Cut with two runs: Quite surprised as you can see there is quite a difference.
I am not sure how clear this is but there was a slight difference in the depth of the embossing.
I ran both of them through the machine twice.
Something that I did notice was that the card seemed to release from the die easier. I would normally use wax paper with these intricate dies but for this test I did not.
Finally decided to try a really thin paper with a Tim Holtz embossing folder.
This is typical with thin papers, if you look at the bottom you can see that the paper is badly torn.
I still need to do more tests but will post any interesting findings.
Hope you will pop over to see what the other deskers have been up to.
