Diode Laser COLORboard Effects

COLORboard Effects are laser safe. It is a heat and pressure applied color application to MDF*, basswood, or 100% cotton which allows for colors and patterns not achieved through paints or other wood finish options. COLORboards Effects allow for a vibrant color, glitter, neon, or even metallic option for your projects. COLORboards can easily be incorporated as a component into larger wood projects or even different COLORboards to make colorful wood projects.

Size: 12x19" (Basswood is 12x18")

Core: 1/8" MDF*, basswood, or 100% cotton

Masking: There is a thin layer of clear masking overlying the board. This can be removed after cutting. To do so, use your fingernail or our Craft Precision Weeding Tool Set to get under the clear masking but not the adhered color sheet. While well adhered, the color sheet could be pulled up with force. Gently pull back the masking. It comes off very easily with solid colors; it is more tight on the glitter, and take particular care with the HOLOboard to remove slowly as the HOLO material can stick to the masking. Do NOT use a scraper to remove the masking as this will scratch up the color application.

*Glowforge Aura & MDF: Glowforge does not recommend cutting MDF on the Aura. Our supposition, and many others, is that this is due to the filter, not that a diode laser can not cut MDF. MDF creates more dust which the Aura filter has difficulty clearing the and will clog the filter faster. If you have the Aura vented to the outside, especially with an additional in-line fan, then the dust can be cleared well. The basswood core cuts easier and cleaner and a superior choice. But if vented outside (which is a great option anyway) then MDF will work well.
