Another good reason to use a silhouette cutter.....
I just repainted my CC Beatniks cabinet and used a Cameo 3 to cut the stencils.
The art on my cabinet was totally painted over by a previous owner's kids, yes, including spray paint graffiti, so I could not tell if there should be spatter on the base coat. Being a relatively uncommon and unloved machine, I couldn't find any pictures where I could see the definitive answer. So, I did not spray any spatter, only to find someone here on Pinside a few days after the job was complete. He was able to (see where this is going?) confirm that there should indeed be spatter on the base coat.....enter the Silhouette. Since I still had the original path files, I was able to recut new stencils and used the previously weeded sections to mask over the painted colored areas on the cabinet, then proceeded to add the spatter. It worked out great, would have to have left the base white, or done some serious masking with tape without having the Cameo.
