First time engraving on cork!🀞🏼


A little quarantine 2020 crafting experiment featuring my grand cat @thisisramonathekitty !!:cat2: First time engraving on cork. It came out a bit darker (on her face) than I was wanting, so I may remove a few layers and try it again. Not bad for my first try! :blush: A big thanks to quinnone2 for the settings he used on his engraved cork, the settings were perfect. :clap:t2:(https://community.glowforge.com/u/quinnone2)

Yeah wow - I think 2 was just about perfect on the fact, and a mix of 2 or 3 on the body. I love seeing the details fill in as you go!

Nice work! I think the engrave is nice. Perhaps try speeding up or lowing the power. Maybe even increase LPI. You are on your way!

Thank you! I had it at 1000, 25, 250…that were recommended on the GF community. I might play with it a bit more and see what happens. :slightly_smiling_face:

Thank you so much! And I totally agree! I’m going to play around with the layers and see what I can do to improve it a bit. :blush:

I love cork! I got a bunch of cork materials at Ikea last year, still burning through them haha. This looks great, well done!

Thank you! She definitely is!!! And we have so many pictures of her since our daughter moved to Denver in January…we miss our grand-cat & daughter so much. She tries to send a few pictures a week. I’m sure I’ll be tempted to put her picture on a lot more things using our Glowforge of course!! :slight_smile:
