    At our club we have been using a mix of grease/pipe dope and paint thinner to cover our steel pattern board. This mix is hard to spread and costly. What are you using at your club. Looking to replace ours ASAP.

    Thanks,

    We use a large sheet of kraft paper from a 1000ft roll. No fuss, no mess and you can take the pattern sheet with you.

    I have to agree with Wizard. We use the sme thing and it works great. You may hvave to go to a paint store to get the pigment. Lowes locally wouldn't sell the pigment. Bill Parson Jr.
