On October 13th, 2018, I was the guardian for my dad on the 48th Stars and Stripes Honor Flight from Milwaukee, Wis., to Washington, D.C. Honor Flights take US Military Veterans who served their country during WWII, Korean and Vietnam War. My dad was in the Marine Corps during the Korean War.
Rich carved these plates in EZboard and look at the results he’s getting!
He was in the Eau Claire, WI, class and is making great progress. Keep it up, Rich!
I fairly certain Rich painted these first, applied the pattern and then did the chip carving.
Here’s another way I’m finding gives great results…
1. Paint first (spray with Rustoleum 2X Ultra as there are lots of colors to choose from)
2. Use spray adhesive to attach your pattern to a piece of vinyl mask
3. Attach the vinyl mask to the pre-painted item
5. Paint carved recesses with color(s) of your choice
6. Remove vinyl mask after paint has dried.
by the way…All styles of plates are available in EZboard! Simply order the plate(s) at MyChipCarving.com/store and in the Comment: section mention you’d like your plates in EZboard. Simple
EZboard, HDU (high density urethane) sign carving and…
Ryan carved this sign for his development and did a smack bang-up job! He used 20# density EZboard, 1.5″ thick I believe. Their old sign rotted away. This one will last a looong time! Well done, Ryan!
This star in a cage was carved by Alan. Creative! There’s a lot of ideas you can explore with EZboard. Nicely done, Alan!
How to chip carve smooth curves!
Scroll down to see how using a lazy susan helps when it comes to chip carving smooth curves and circles!
I’m using a 12″ lazy susan from Amazon ($7.00 or so). Using a large lazy susan helps support your work better than the common small ones. Enjoy the video!
Chip Carved EZboard HDU Wedding Plate
From start to finish after this plate was painted (Rustoleum 2X Ulta Cover, Heirloom White), it took me only 5 hours until it was ready to wrap. And that’s not rushing at all
This is a 10″ rim plate, 15# density (light green). $11.92 Click HERE
After carving I used acrylic paints and a brush. Seeing as I applied vinyl mask with the pattern on it before carving, painting is really easy! Brush in the recesses and then remove the masking. Crisp lines are guaranteed!
