Shaping Instruction Waiver

Glass & Paint it yourself?

Let's say you want to risk that beautiful board you just shaped and choose to glass it yourself, sure go ahead but I strongly recommend against it. Applying paint yourself to the shaped foam is deeply discouraged and will not be allowed unless you plan to glass it yourself.
