This project used the glowforge as an intermediary step but I thought I’d post it anyway. I wanted to engrave Deadpool on a bottle of Aviation Gin since the company is owned by Ryan Reynolds. I sandblasted the bottle itself but I used the Glowforge to make a rubber stencil for the sandblasting. I also created a new method to get more detail out of the sandblasting by gluing aluminum foil to it and using settings that go through the rubber but not the foil so I couldn’t lose them. I went into more detail of the process in a youtube video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQGlX5U-JIQ
Turned out great how thick is the bottle? was wondering if one would fit into the machine with the bed removed.
My original plan was to put it in the laser but its just a tiny bit to thick by less than half an inch. But also in my experience even though its less precise sandblasting gives a better finish on glass than a laser.
Nice job. I started this journey of sorts doing sand carving several years ago. There used to be an excellent sand carving forum, but it closed down.
