I chatted the boxboy up at the big grocery store. I asked him if i could have a large corrugated sign that as lying in the laundry detergent aisle that looked abandoned. it was about 1.5 feet by 3 yards. When that caught my eye omg i was bling! there is my Glitter Tat sign!!! woo hoo . it took some convincing for him to give it to me, because it was part of the display but i have it now alien

going to bump this thread up.. I have Presto2(red) adhesive transfer tape. Looks great on my stencils, but its tooo tacky and takes forever to peel off the stencil and then sometimes it rips the stencils. I was told it was medium tack.. Does the heat effect the bonding? I know theres a lot of info on here about transfer tape, but there are no specific brands/with the exact kind ordered, just links on where to buy.. Thanks for your help...

Vegas mom if you want to salvage your transfer tape you can try lightly dusting the vinyl after its cut with baby powder (I take a large blush brush and dust it around). Now don't put so much on that you can see white, this is a light dusting.

When we have a customer that is a beginner and having trouble with tape removal we can run a series just for them using this baby powder dusting and the tape removes easier. (this is not recommended though for anything with floating pieces-you need that sticky tape for those). Play round with it and maybe you can manage to use up the tape you've already paid for. I need to pull invoices to look up the exact transfer we are using-will post later

Ug I too am having to stick tape issues. I got preview plus from jra signs- it's medium tack and I tore a spider transfer with it yesterday. I'm using the 341 orcal. I've tried calling some local sign shops to see if anyone has low tack. one does, but they only carry the 15 inch, which I guess I could do. arg, its been a frustrating morning.

Does anyone use or make reusable stencils?

I have reusable airbrush tattoo stencils, do you think I could make ones similar to those with the materials available out there?

Has anyone tried this? The stencils are on a page and the stencils are used then placed back onto a sticker backing type paper.
This is what I'm trying to do. I'm not big on lots of waste I get from individual use stencils. Any ideas?

You can use the plastic book dividers, I do the stencils with my silhouette for face painting with them.

I was meaning the reusable vinyl. It's an airbrush tattoo stencil book filled with reusable vinyl stencils that have tack/adhesive on the back.

I have several of those books but prefer to make my own designs because the choices are limited. Does anyone know which vinyl is used for those? It has a matte feel to them. I was going to try 641 outdoor 4yr. But I don't know. I might just call up a sign shop.

I would also know what kind of vinyl people use for re-useable airbrush tattoo stencils.

I also second this also I would like to know how well do these stencils work for glitter tattoos or do you use them for airbrush?

I am seriously thinking in investing and purchasing a silhouette. What is the software that i should buy with it? there is an offer, i could purchase the software "Silhouette Studio Designer Edition Upgrade Card" did anybody use it already?
This was one of the most interesting thread; i read it front to back. Thank you all for your wonderful input.
I love you

I have had the cutter for more than a year now, I didn't buy the software and I haven't need it, you can use without it to cut stencils, I don't have the time to play with it to do anything else.

Hi! I'm new to the forum but I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to the folks who shared this info! I got my new Sillhouette Portrait (the littler one, not the Cameo) today and have been playing with it. I already figured out how to use the software that came with it to convert .jpeg pictures into stencils using the Trace tool! I didn't need the SCAL (although Im sure it's cool too) so I'm able to get started for less money than I thought. Thanks to all of you I now have access to unlimited custom stencils! Yay! Thank you!

I'm getting the Sillhouette Portrait also. Not to do glitter tattoos though. I sponge on tattoo with temporary tattoo paint.

I know this is an old thread but now I want a Cricut. Never had a need for one because I didn't realize you could customize like that!

Do not get a Cricut. You will be very limited in what you do as you cannot cut your own images. You have to use cartridges unless you get their newest machine. Get a Silhouette Cameo. I have both. I can make my own images with my Cricut because I have SCAL (no longer available for Cricut however). To be honest I havn't touched my Cricut since I got my Cameo. I will most likely sell it soon. I am new to Glitter Tattoo's but have been working with Vinyl on my Cricut and Silhouette Cameo for a few years.

Thank you so much for sharing your experience with those. So you can make your own designs with the cameo?,

Yes, You have to upgrade the basic software it comes with to the Designer Edition or purchase Sure Cuts Alot3 (SCAL3) or Make the Cut to be able to import your own designs. I have Desiger Edition and SCAL3. I prefer SCAL3 myself.
I use mine for all kinds of projects.. decals, wood signs, card making, 3d projects like boxes. The things you can do are endless.
Glitter Tattoos are a new adventure for me. My supplies should be here tomorrow. I will be making my own stencils

I also have the silhouette cameo and use it to make stencils. Instead of buying any more programs if you see an image you like trace it. For example, I find a really nice image on google, I save the picture to the computer, import it to silhouette and trace the image. If need be I go into the modify window to adjust it. It sounds harder but I barely know I'm doing it anymore. and after spending money for the machine and vinyl and everything else that goes along with doing glitter tattoos it's nice to be able to do something for free. Let me know if you want any more guidance on how to do anything. Smile
