Custom Altoids tin

My friend makes these neat silicone anatomical hearts in black altoids tins, and I bought one to engrave the top for Valentine’s Day for my husband!


I did a couple test runs on the back of it, and none of them turned out great… Not perfect, but I’m proud of myself for figuring out the settings to get the front pretty decent! It’s the first time I’ve ever done manual settings :slight_smile:
