    Has anybody tried making their own etching stencils using a laser printer and shiny catalogue paper? It seems to good to be true. Wondering how thick the paper should be before I test.

    Also, which catalogs work best. If I need to find some Victoria secret catalogs, I guess I will : )

    I have tried the toner transfer to parchment paper. It works, but it's hit or miss to get a good transfer to the steel. Clothes irons aren't exactly precision. :)

    Put nail polish on the blade. Use laser to cut logo then use etcher.Does a nice job and easy to clean up with nail polish remover
