First try with vellum

Thought I’d try using vellum to engrave a skeleton leaf. Thought it turned out decent. Next try I’ll increase the power a little to darken the engrave a bit.

Whoof! Just realized I have a use for the stacks of vellum I’ve got clogging up the storage room upstairs!

Great job! :smile:

That’s really beautiful. The effect is nice and subtle and would look great in a lamp shades.

Holy crap this is awesome! I have a bunch of printable vellum, I wonder what it would do to a printed image on the vellum. Well I know what I’m doing with my morning tomorrow. Time to make me a leaf vector.

Exactly what I was thinking. Also an overlay to a card.

This is so cool! I’ve wanted to stick vellum in and see what happened before, but I couldn’t figure out what it’s made of. The modern stuff is coated in some kind of plastic or something, right?
