First attempts / first post

Just got my own Glowforge and wanted to show off some of my first few projects. Hopefully I’m posting correctly.

A Hogwarts coaster set for my sister’s birthday. Had fun working with ceramic but learned i need to be more careful when lining up the svg on the screen. I rubbed alcohol ink into the etch and then sealed with epoxy resin. Also yes I see Gryffindor is spelled incorrectly. I totally missed it when making the file haha.

I did an acrylic little planchette earring. Used Rub and Buff to fill the etch and then coated in a UV resin.

Another birthday gift for my sister. I love the edge lit acrylic and now want to make all the things!

Something looked off to me and it took a few minutes to figure out what it was - I think the spelling of the red one is different than I have seen. You might want to check it before giving it just in case there is an error.

Fun way to get started!

Do you have a UV resin you like? I bought a random brand somewhere and I’m not happy with the results.

Really impressed! I want to start doing different things with jewelry and earrings. I like the hook you used with your pair. Mind sharing where you purchased them? @delaney333

Haha yah the Gryfinndor is super spelled incorrectly. I told my sister it was because Slytherins look down on them lol.

I buy my UV resin from Sophie and Toffee. I bought one off of Amazon and wasn’t happy with the consistency, but every one I’ve bought from Singapore (sophie and tofee has been great). I also use a UV nail lamp to cure it.
