I’m working on a series of projects inspired by some of the canvas art seen here. I’m having issues getting things lined up properly. First off images I send to the machine are making lines across the print in both directions.
As for the canvas issues, I’m having a hard time getting them dark enough. Also there’s a lot of unevenness in the way its engraving. At first I thought it was the way the canvas was painted but when I tried it on a scrap coaster it does it there too. They engrave looking good (minus the vertical lines) but they’re faint. It doesn’t matter if its on raw or painted canvas its very faint. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get darker without just burning straight through the canvas? I really love the projects on here and they’ve inspired me to do some of my own. Any suggestions anyone has would be greatly appreciated.
