I did try some UV curable solder resist'

I can harden it with a laser, either the 405 or the engraver laser (forgot the wavelength 465?)
but I cannot get it to be tight and clean, it is either a clean etch but too soft and wipes off with acetone or it hardens where i dont want it, guess reflection off the copper, and then you need to scrub to get those areas clean and it simply damages the supposed hard areas.
once done though you give it a few minutes under sunlight and this stuff is hard as nails.

I am going to try some Dry Moly Lube for metal when I have the time to get it and actually do it.

I will post my results. Probably in my usual fashion and make the thread "METAL BABY!"
