DarkZen and Evil Cow Pie Subject: Solution for the back of Tan-Z

Over in this thread (;threadId=140760) there was talk of the pebble texture on the back of Tan-Z and how it could be removed so both sides were usable for carving.

There was also the suggestion for using the pebble texture for ‘shading’ which I found interesting. This morning I was test printing the back (it’s got promise!). But so as not to get ink all over myself when using the front, I took a paper towel and some acetone to clean off the residue ink.

And I discovered that with a light scrubbing the pebble texture came off and left the surface as smooth as the “front” side! No slicing, no chopping, no sanding needed! I’m guessing for larger areas you might want to use a block or something to keep the surface level but the solution to getting the back carvable proved to be pretty simple.
