    I was watching an episode of 'How It's Made' where they were discussing how drywall joint compound was made. At the end of the show, they showed how a thick plastic stencil could be used to make raised plaster designs around the home. So naturally I thought that I could use the Platprinter to cut out these stencils, and make some really interesting designs. Has anyone done anything like this before? Here are some links to what others have done:

    A good walk-through: http://www.google.com/imgres?num=10&hl=en&safe=off&biw=1280&bih=939&tbm=isch&tbnid=uajR1hlxpUTVSM:&imgrefurl=http://allthingsshea.blogspot.com/2009/07/diy-fun-joint-compound-stencils.html&docid=WCNp4u3hN5jquM&imgurl=http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3517/3748991537_c6dba1fa56.jpg&w=500&h=302&ei=CWxgUJ2bL8SzrQHbpoB4&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=828&vpy=459&dur=248&hovh=174&hovw=289&tx=145&ty=97&sig=102701044238420436320&sqi=2&page=1&tbnh=101&tbnw=168&start=0&ndsp=30&ved=1t:429,r:16,s:0,i:121

    I haven't tried this out yet, but I do have a small bucket of drywall mud left over from a recent project... :doubleup:

    Now that is a really neat, why didn't I think of that, idea. I use SeeTemp to cut paint stencils which are the same thickness as the store bough ones.

    It looks amazing. I always try to cut paint stencils and make such designs. But I always fail in dragging joint compound and prepare a creative design. This idea will really help me to improve my work and design a new product.
