would mylar be suitable as a mask? either blasting or etching?
I just got 2 rolls, one brown, one semi-transparent, for free..
I'm not talking 50' either, these are HUGE...
I can think of a million uses related to art, but does it have any uses in knife making? :confused:

If you can see thru it, Mylar is great for covering the glass on the inside of a bead blast cabinet. Keeps the glass from frosting over.

I was thinking about using it for spacer material sometime too, you can fuse it together pretty easily so it might be cool.
if anyone has a need for this stuff drop me a line, I have more than I'll ever be able to use, even for art junk.

When you said mask were you thinking of something like a stencil to mark the blade with? It would probably work pretty well for bead blasting, but I think in an etch you need something thats bonded to the blade a little better so the acid can't seep underneath it.
