What vinyl

Post by glittercat on Fri Aug 15, 2014 9:22 am

I have got some vinyl but it seems very flimsy - Ritama 300. I want something thicker. This one claims its 75u. I am not sure what micro thickness I can use on a craft robo and at the same time have vinyl thats sturdy so I can put it on the skin easily and pull it off easily. Also perhaps w/o having to use app tape. Can anyone help?

Thanks

I think it's like opinions on face paint--I'd check the back of your favorite outsourced tatts & use what you liked in application.

Just as there are many opinions on what face paint is best, there are varied opinions on what vinyl is best. Hence, checking what is printed on the back of the glitter tattoos that you prefer will tell you how to google the manufacturer/find it on ebay, etc.

(I am sorry not to be clearer, my kids complain about me not explaining properly all the time!)

The back of the glitter tattoos are blank. That's the first thing I think of when I look for stuff like this.

Dog gone it! Why not ask the company that produced them? They just may tell you. If not, it,'s not a huge investment in time...

I cut my own tattoo stencils out of Oracal 631 (indoor matte vinyl) or Hobby Lobby's store brand. Both work, but the Oracal 631 sticks a little better, and doesn't stretch out of shape as much.

I am looking t oracal 621 for mine (that is what is on the back of the ones I just bought...plus waterbased adhesive) my question is what adhesive film do you all use? I have a pricelist here for my local supplier of oracal but having not done a lot of vinyl work I have only ever done my vinyl as is not with transfer tape so a bit bewildered as to which one to use...I am thinking medium tack??? but would it be application film or application paper?
