Leigh, I just received my first order of No Days and am loving it!
First, I just wanted to say thanks for the work you did here, pioneering
this product for mosaic artists!

Second, a question: the No Days Mesh
came with an opaque release paper, and the instructions recommended I
sketch my design directly onto the mesh. I found I can’t achieve the
level of detail I want by doing this, and would love to have my image
directly behind the mesh to guide my work. Could you recommend a CLEAR,
heat-resistant release paper I could use behind the mesh that would not
obscure my image? Thanks so much for your time! Cheers! ~Lynn

I’m so glad to hear you are enjoying the No Days mesh, Lynn! Since it is
easiest to work in one foot squares (for installation purposes as well
as ease of using the kitchen oven to adhere the tesserae), I create my
design on any paper I want and divide it into workable shapes that I can
piece together easily and conveniently. Then, instead of using the
release paper (save it!), I use waxed paper and put the mesh on top of
that. You can see your design and the mesh can be heated and will
release. CAUTION! Test your wax paper. Some recent purchases have not
been adequately strong, the paper was inferior. Try a test square and
keep notes on what works for you And please let me see what you do!

UPDATE: I have found that Reynolds Parchment paper (the side with the writing on it) will also work well as a release liner.
