I have found that the real trick is light source. I used to be a
photographer, so I have a very strong halogen directional light. I
find that when I use that in a dark closet to expose the piece, I get
much cleaner results due to less bleed around the edge of my mask.
What I have really been checking out though, are the new impact
printers, where I can just send it a file, and it will stamp out
metal parts!

The goal is to overcome the deliberate nature of the process.
