[ale] [OT] Silkscreening



I'd been wondering if Cricut might be a path forward but I wasn't sure 
how to go about it assuming I could get a machine to cut from my drawing 
(and from the sound of it, one can). What I *don't* think I want to do 
is use the cut vinyl itself as the lettering. This leaves using the 
vinyl as either a stencil (steps: paint crinkle black, apply stencil, 
paint white, remove stencil) or as an anti-stencil (steps: paint white, 
apply vinyl where letters will be, paint crinkle black, painstakingly 
peel up vinyl). I'm not sure which of those two will actually work well. 
I've got some text that's only 3.5mm tall and there are Rs, A, and Os to 
contend with. What do you think?
