    The polymer base paint I currently use is achieving this. The pita is keeping the film attached to the edges after the shearing action of the cutters. I have it sussed it 95% with the iron on film but my original search request was for a better film to give 100% adhesion and still be removable. I do have that workable compromise currently and with due diligence it is giving me a result. Simply seeking either a better film or method.

    Only just come across this could a change of cutter help have you tried a down cut?

    This application is for a "V" cutting bit. Not sure if there is a downcutting option. I normally use downcutters for pocketing.

    Only option seems to be what was already mentioned- incompatible paints.

    What if you paint top layer with automotive/car type solvent based paints, then engrave, then paint recesses with water based paint that can wipe off the top layer? Might even be able to laquor top layer, possibly even with a silicone product that is totally hydrophobic.

    Currently doing just that, with water based acrylics for the infills.

    For the infills as you call them I think you should use a thick paint because as Boyan said earlier, it will soak sideways into the top grain if thin.
    Also I'm wondering about the stuff they 'wrap' cars etc. in ?
    Spelling mistakes are not intentional, I only seem to see them some time after I've posted

    The only way i know of, as i said above, is using flat reinforced sponge to do that. As per this sign making video:
