I spent the weekend resin printing caps and masking/painting the clear ornaments. I figured the painting was good practice for when I find the iridescent ornaments. I'm resigned to waiting for Christmas time to find them. The christmas tree is going to be rocking the extra clear ornaments this year as I now have 6-7 boxes of different sized ones. If you're going to use the clear ones shown in the picture below, get them here:

The file that I used for the masking is attached as a zipped SVG. The dimensions are 5" x 1.6". I'm cutting the mask on a vinyl cutter using Oramask 813 stencil film. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B079JB36NG
. The main challenge is centering each side on the ornament. I weed the stencil then apply transfer tape. I center the stencil on the bottom of the ornament using the center circle and then fold up to the neck of the ornament on both sides. Burnish the edges to make sure the stencil is stuck and then carefully peel the transfer tape. Then remaining uncovered glass with painter's tape. I cut the tape into 1/2" pieces and tiled them on the ornament curves.

The caps are not resin printing as expected. I'm picking up support side blurriness that I haven't been able to resolve. I'm assuming I'll get it dialed in eventually but also I ordered MJF PA11 printed ones. More on that when I have them in hand. The STL file is attached.
