Hello again everyone.
I was wondering if anyone who does a lot of etching and likes to
purchase digital art in vector format for printing and masking their
metals would care to share their favorite sources? While vector is
preferred, any single colored digital images can work.
I have found a few sites that have separate license options so you
can create merchandise with them but I’m not too thrilled with the
Istockphoto and shutterstock were OK, but I thought I might check
with you fine folks.
I am drawing some of my own on inkscape but I am very slow going
since I am new to making them.
Vectors are working well because the laser printers can easily print
1200 dpi and with the vectors when I size them down to print they
don’t have any jagged edges. I’ve been using the starch paper from
Pulsar that is much better than PnP blue. They sell a special foil
that you heat onto the transferred metal that seals the toner on your
metal. So your mask completely resists the etch. I am getting great
detail this way. So I’d like to find more sources of things to print.
