If you didn’t know, the Quick Swap Housing will also fit for the wavy blade, the perforation blade, the debossing tip and the scoring wheel. So you only need one Quick Swap Housing for all these tips.
Also, there is a way to engrave with the Cricut Explore but it involves a non-Cricut tip, which I don’t recommend and I won’t be covering this in this course.
- Basswood planks (do not use Balsa wood) – Look for 1,5 mm in thickness (1/16″) or less – These are the ones I bought: CAD; USD
- Strong grip mat – Purple
- Masking tape
- Sandpaper (I’m using fine-grit #120)
- Wood Stain (I’m using Saman water-based wood stain colour #203 Sesame)
- Clearcoat (I’m using Minwax polycrylic)
- Foam brush
To hang the wood plank as I did
For Infusible Ink (optional):
- Easy Press1 or EasyPress2 or EasyPress 3 (I have the 12″ x 10″ but you could use a smaller one)
- Easy Press mat
- Infusible Ink transfer sheets (these are the ones I’m using)
- Heat resistant tape
To attach the aluminum with chains as I did:
- Small jewelry chain
