Sticker shadow
« on: April 19, 2019, 05:23:02 PM »

The stickers on my newbery have bitten the dust (peeled and ripped) so it's going plain the year

How do you get rod of sticker shadow?

No, there's markings left over from my stickers and it's annoying me!

I normally just ship my bats off and being as practical as a chocolate fireguard I thought I'd ask!

3 choices

a) bigger stickers to cover the shadow
b) sand the bat until shadow gone, if the shadow is strong this may take a while
c) dont, accept the shadow and play on

Perfect thank you!

Sanding it is! May take a while 😂

Will gradually do it until they've gone!

While wax/oiling some of those areas help? Or just exaggerate the problem?

clean off the glue with meth spirit
sand the shadow.

If you wait, the sun will probably do a pretty good job of evening out the shapes.
