Sandcarving Tip: Working with Wine Bottles

Which photoresist thickness is best for wine bottles?

A 5mil photoresist is generally used for sandcarving wine bottles because of the ability to achieve substantial depth for the paint-filling. However, a 4mil photoresist is required if the artwork image is a detailed design. The 5mil photoresist film handles less detail but has more blast resistance. The 4mil photoresist film will provide more detail in the artwork with less blast resistance. Note: wine bottles are generally thicker glass and can handle a decent sandcarving depth.
