I attempted to engrave a 6x6 wood sign I picked up at AC Moore. The results weren’t great and I’m hoping someone would have some suggestions.
On the positive side this was my first attempt without the tray or any supports…
I think I should have engraved deeper. The surface of the sign is not smooth, so the paint looks horrible…I’m thinking that if I engraved it deeper , maybe the paint would have taken better. I haven’t sanded it yet to see how this will come off but was hoping for some suggestion on the engrave settings…
Here is what I used:
Sign height is 1.85
Focus Height .45
Lines Per Inch 450
