Sandcarving Tile and River Rock

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.

Tile and river rock commonly require a surface to moderate depth etch. When sandcarving river rock or tile, you have the option of a 5 mil self-stick photoresist film (additional adhesive can be applied to self-stick) for a surface etch, and the ability to etch deeper with 6 mil. The artwork image can determine the mil thickness; if it is detailed then a 5 mil is preferred.
