sweet display piece, but a horrible clickbait title:P
Honestly I dont know, I've never worked with vinyl. However, all the stencil needs to do is keep the water / acid from reaching the metal, Try out a small test piece with some vinyl scraps and you'll know;) cheers, knut
I attempted the q tip method on a rather large piece of metal but the etch was far too shallow. All I did to make a stencil was carve it into a sheet of vinyl. Would the vinyl be enough to resist the electric current and the etching solution if I used this method.
Medieval Visby Gauntlet
if you want the "blacksmith" look, after its finished just place it on your fire while its on low air to get it blackened, then while its still hot use some beeswax or parafin to give it a layer of wax, this will keep the rust out.(I use parafin on my armour, not a spot of rust in years, unlike oils wich evaporate after a few months)
Arming cap / helmet padding
Simple Cheap Buckles
Move over wax fruit, here come plastic garlic!
The rest of the bike I mostly used the frame for tubing to make my bellows / forge. The other crank is being transformed into a broken back seax. I kind of regret ever starting that project, the steel used in bike cranks is really REALLY tough metal, so each heating only moves a minimal amount of steel. Will keep a good edge in the end though.cheers, knut.
ofcourse! nothin like some dirt and molten slag between your toes! also dont forget the large pieces of glowing steel and hammers flying around!
Mastering the "J" Hook
