These don’t look lasered, do they? I was going for an enamelled look.
The pendants started as Canson watercolor art board (I love that stuff!). First I took some scraps of the art board and did some loose watercolor painting with Daniel Smith watercolors. Then I cut the pendant shapes including holes out of the art board, wicked some superglue into the sides to add strength, and painted back and sides with black gesso. Front and back were then coated with 2-part epoxy resin, and the hardware added.
I really like the trendy clasp-in-front-of-necklace look.
No, they don’t! They look beautiful!
What she said! Definitely enamelled!
Gorgeous!!! I love these!!!
What a terrific result. I would never guess these began as watercolor art board.
Those came out great! Very creative technique.
Extremely creative. Love them.
Wow nice result, thanks for the process tips.
Those are gorgeous! I love how you try so many interesting techniques…and this is definitely one of the best you’ve done.
Absolutely beautiful, and a very interesting technique!
They don’t look lasered at all, very nice!
You had fooled me! another great technique.
Really nice. They are perfect. Great description of your work flow as well. Thanks.
They’re beautiful! They do look like enamel!!
Beautiful work, congratulations!
Definitely on my to-try list.
they look better than my real enamel. great job. seems like more work though.
That is amazing! That looks exactly like enamel to me, and I’m shocked it started with a laser cutter!
Some day when there is a Glowforge convention, @cynd11 will have the privilege to give a presentation on the main stage.
(And there are a few others here who definitely should get that privilege, but you have been one of those who introduces material and art forms that extend the range of the Glowforge.)
