Achieve the Best Sandcarving Results

Liz Haas has been a teacher, trainer and show coordinator for Rayzist Photomask for the past 15 years. For the past 10 years, she has actively taught workshops on the photoresist and the sandcarving process.

To achieve the best results from your sandcarving, you want to choose the right thickness of photoresist film. Artwork determines the mil thickness of the photoresist film. Photoresist film is available in various thicknesses for detail and blasting depth. 

Detailed designs and small fonts need to be processed on the thinner material thickness such as a 3-mil photoresist film. A 4-mil photoresist film is perfect for detailed images that require a slightly deeper etch. To achieve the best results on detailed images, process them on the lower mils such as 3- or 4-mil.
