Animal tile engraving

I finally got around to trying tile engraving and I am hooked. I can’t believe how cool this looks!

Anybody try framing tile? It seems this could make for some really cool hanging artwork.

I just used some permanent markers I have laying around.

The dog is amazing; looks like a watercolor.

Here was my quick attempt messing around one day. Never hung it up but it certainly could be done!

Photo is a little off center but you get the idea.

Do you care to share what setting you used?

I’ve been using speed of 600, full power, 450 LPI. Here is another one I did today - my kids had a blast coloring it!

Beautiful colors. Bet that took a while to color. :laughing:

I love your work! I did want to ask you what setting you use on your GF to make these? Is there a material that you use in the settings or do you click on the unknown material? If so, what settings do you type in? I tried to score one of the tiles and the machine would move but no lasering was going on. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Now my kids are treating my glowforge as though it’s a coloring book manufacturing machine
