Nice disc sugarnot!

I know getting circles close to the edge are a b!tch and I suck at it, I wonder if it would be better to hand cut those outer circles and the connecting lines between them on the disc after the vinyl is laid down. A circle cutter with a twin blade set up would make it pretty simple.

thanks Dan, this is a big complement coming from you. The thing with all of it is that it was a plotter cut stencil that I got from freezermink, so I guess as you said those outer circles could be hand cut instead, then u run into the problem of a circle cutter large enough. Kinda a catch 22 either way. I almost wonder if it would be better to do something like a mixed method that part of it is stencil, part of it is painted with your circle method, etc. Nonetheless, its much better than my first attempt at it I did a couple months ago.

Thanks everyone for the complements though.

thank you for the stencil. I really need to get my plotter back up but cant justify the $180 for a new motherboard when I can buy a whole new plotter for a lil more :/

" I know getting circles close to the edge are a b!tch"

I cheat. I cut the vinyl so its total circumference is barely smaller than the disk itself. this will create a tiny small black border around the disc and you could mask off the edge with a little rubber cement if you really wanted to, but I like doing it like this because then I don't have to fold the vinyl over on the back of the disc, creating those small little wrinkles at the edge that causes bleeds.
