Customer Review Extra Thick Acetate

Sam Packer from D4Daisy  and Workshop on the Web ... A lovely and loyal Stix2 Customer has kindly written a product review on our Clear Extra Thick Acetate. This is what she had to say...

Stix2 Extra Thick Acetate Sheets

These Acetate Sheets come in a heavier weight of 300 microns and a great for a number of uses. With the Vitrail paints, the surface worked very well, and particularly if you don’t feel you have a use for the paints with glass, this is a solid alternative.

The strength of the sheet makes is ideal for cutting out shapes and creating stencils on the die-cutter. I have cut thinner acetate sheets before and found them too flimsy to place and easily bent, particularly where there were delicate designs.

These thicker sheets are much easier to handle. I also found it easy to cut with a blade for simple handmade stencils. This provided me with a leaf-shaped stencil, several masks from the cut-out shapes, and also some curved edge masks which are good for printing.

I used these on the Gelli plate with the Pebeo Studio Acrylics.

Since writing this review Sam has also kindly informed up that Stix2 Extra Thick Acetate is also good for crochet edging and kindly sent us this image via her WorkShop on the Web. Its great to see our products being used in different ways and this is a perfect example.

Thanks Sam. It's great to know how people use our products and how they get on. Looking forward to the next review.
