Thank you for bringing this request to the attention of the laser cutter committee.

Rustoleum Painter’s Touch N1974830 Multi-Purpose Spray Paint has been approved for use on the VHS laser cutter.

Please make sure that paint is 100% dry before cutting/etching. This means waiting longer that the minimum drying time for the paint,

That is awesome. Would the LCC be okay with this entire product line of paint…i.e. all the colours in this specific line, or should each separate colour be submitted for LCC approval?

I think it is best to start with this color and see how it works out before we do an assesment of an entire product line. For example are there metalic or glitter based rustoleum paints? I have not checked.

Thanks - that’s a great point - I hadn’t even thought about glitter paints having a different composition. Sounds like a plan to start with this one colour and see how things go.
