    Would anyone happen to have and be willing to share a file of a tattered USA Flag?

    The base metal is stainless steel .. the red is dye-chem layout fluid and the blue is simply heat discoloration .. when all done with that .. extra-fine scotch-brite to polish the white

    i was having troubles with the outside border also till i exploded it and it showed up great, im still kinda new to this and still learning for sure so this may be a stupid question but why does exploding it make the boarder appear?

    Drawings can be made up of different types of lines, some of which some programs may not recognise........ it's likely that your program doesnt recognise a polyline.......which is a continuous line including all curves etc. Exploding it breaks it up into seperate segments that are now recognised. Google polylines, splines, arcs etc, it makes for interesting reading.

    Here's my take on it. 14GA P&O first sand the entire piece, used peroxide and salt to rust the eagle, heat for the blue, sprayed candy red over the bare metal for the red stripes then buffed the head and tail of the eagle and the white stripes back in with a scotch bright roll lock disc and covered the entire piece in clear.
