    Big John 1945 , I’m curious how to cut frisket with such precision...
    I mean the glasses rounded shape...
    I bet I couldn’t get it as smoothly done as this, if I try to cut it with razor in my hands?
    Unless I should drink less coffee , lol ;)

    Maybe my post is a bit unclear , but honesty I’m wonder how to cut the masking frisket ideally...
    I bet I can’t do it as precise with scalpel holding in my hand? Did you do it with your hands, or you’ve used some “cutting” plotter ?
    I have no plotter, and I never have used it, so I’m unsure if it’s possible to get the glasses shape cut with the plotter ?
    Cheers ;)

    I made a copy of the reference picture, cut out the glasses with an exacto knife, used the cutout to draw the glasses. Then covered the drawing with frisket and very carefully cut the frisket with an exacto blade. No coffee that day.lol Hope this helps.

    I’ll remember - no coffee ;) !
    Thanks a lot for your keen reply ;)
    I was wondering how did you do it ...
    I’m willing to buy the plotter , I thought you might use it,to help you with the cut of the glasses...
    So - it’s possible to be so precise just with the hands cut ;) That’s very good ;)
    I might save some money then...
    Thank you BG1945 (my mom was born that year).
