This is my first time posting here. I have done some minor case mods before (basic spray painting, fans, etc...). Recently I have decided to go big time, i want to design a real fancy case. What I am having trouble figuring out is what i can use as a sutable template material. I want to use the tempate in a reverse painting fashion (i.e. peel the template off the top layer of paint to reveal the first layer of paint and the design). Vinal is an option, but i dont know about a residue that it might leave, or the cost. The other thing i though of was contact paper, but ive been told that leaves a mess (Though how cleanable is it?)
Basically i need something that i can cut out easly and that will stick to the first layer of the paint. That i can then paint over and peel off when done to reveal my design and clearcoat.
Any advice tips or suggestions will be much appriciated.
