I've been trying all of this out on my Silhouette SD and I've had really good luck so far with things being cut right. However, one of the things I'm trying to do is create the lookk of rivets by cutting a row of 2mm dots with the correct spacing then transfer those to my plane. I've seen where there are some people selling something like this so I thought I'd try to do my own. The plane is fiberglassed and primed. I tried a sample on an old piece of fiberglassed balsa I had and what I'm seeing so far is that the paint seems to be causing a problem with the vinyl (middle sunk in, so I am assuming it is melting it). I'm using rustoleum metalic paint (from a can) which does have solvents in it so I'm not terribly surprised.

So the question is, what other adhesive films like this can I use that won't have this problem? I need something that won't be a problem with solvent based paints and of course something that has strong adhesive.

Any thoughts?
