These work great. Thank you @areeve20 I print them at 1.1 and have a series at 1.15 scale since I use masking tape on top of my glass bed. You can take a look at them in action here: http://new.livestream.com/accounts/5558328/events/2422214http://new.livestream.com/acco...

Good stuff!!!
What is the gooey stuff on top of the glass?

I print on the borosilicate glass with a thin layer of ABS painted on it. It's a technique to prevent curling and it works AMAZINGLY well.

I melt my failed prints and leftover raft in a mason jar of acetone. I paint it on, let it dry, print on it, then scrape off any remainder before my next print when I do it all over again.

Can you put the liquid ABS in a spray bottle and spritz it on!?

I have not tried it but my first thought would be no. I would think that the acetone would affect the integrity of the bottle as well as the the plastic spraying mechanisms.
I dont really use much care when I paint it on (I usually use a piece of cardboard as my paintbrush) but if you are printing with raft, it doesn't mess with surface finish.
It doesn't need to look pretty to work!
