Superpose the the canvas onto the acrylic sheet and draw the size on it with the permanent maker.

Step 4: Cut and File

Picture of Cut and File

Cut the acrylic sheet with the jig saw.

here, please use the dust mask and the glasses, as I noticed that the acrylic sheet was melting a bit where i was cutting and emitted an irritating odor ( could be toxic or eye-irritant ).

once done, file down the edges using the wood file.( wear glasses ).

Step 5: Clean

Use the thinner (or your dissolvant) to clean any remaining ink from the previous use.

use the dust mask to protect your lungs from the thinner odor.

Discard this step if you are using a new acrylic sheet.
