Since I didn’t discuss in detail about the different and best types of glass cleaner to use in the electronic manual, I figured creating this post will help.
It is essential to use a glass cleaner to clean the surface where you place the stencil. The reason is obvious- to remove any oils or dirt so that the stencil will adhere strongly and not come off when sandcarving. It is even more important if you are using the photoresist stencil process because details are usually finer which makes them more vulnerable to come off. And the adhesive isn’t usually as strong. (People will email me every once in awhile about this problem.)
But some glass cleaners aren’t that great because it leaves residue streaks behind. Recently I tested out and found a great glass cleaner that I wanted to share with everyone. I was surprised at how well this cleaner worked. I honestly believe this is the best window and glass cleaner on the market. This cleaner is called Invisible Glass, which is shown in the picture on the left.
It’s considered a professional glass cleaner. It cleans up very easily and has no streaks. The popular Windex brand promotes it as a streak free cleaner, but I always noticed that it still leaves some behind. I think this Invisible Glass brand is far superior to others and recommend it for any glass art- especially photoresist etching.
Here is one of the websites where I ordered it from: Invisible Glass Cleaner link
Some of the other fluids you can use for glass cleaners are: rubbing alcohol or diluted denatured alcohol.
So I hope this helps.
