CUTTING - PAD
ca: PLANXA DE TALL
Cutting pad is a product used for cutting different types of paper, cardboard, etc., using a cutting knife. It is a flat piece of plastic made soft enough to let a blade sink into it without damaging it. The blade goes through what is being cut, sinks into the plastic and can be pulled along, leaving a clean cut. Use a paper cutting knife with a sharp, thin, pointed blade. Very useful for cutting out stencils.
Cutting pad, old method; this consists of laying the object to be cut on top of several pages of newspaper and cutting through the lines of the drawing with the razor knife. The blade also goes through the newspaper underneath and this avoids pulling and leaving a rough edge to the stenciling design.
