Hey guys thought I would share another cool tip. I decided to take the plunge on the clear white tiles you see everyone engraving on then using sharpie, but I decided to see how detailed of an image I could get on with less manual coloring (with Spray Paint). I will be making and tuning this trick and settings on my page fb.me/freshstartcustoms as they are made, feel free to follow there if you want to stay up to date with it, I don’t want to flood the forums with the same things over and over, just try to share some of my more successful projects and test on here.
Step 1: I took laser safe black spray paint and sprayed the whole white tile black. Let it dry.
Step 2: Crop your image to size of tile then make your image as two toned as possible get rid of all shadows that you can and all grays as possible and make it completely black and white as possible.
Step 3: Invert the image.
Step 4: make a square cut around the image to create a jig out of any material you want, I use card board. If you need help with jigs check out my write up here: https://www.facebook.com/notes/fresh-start-customs/creating-custom-jigs-tag-transport-cases/441416086314818/
Step 5: pull out the square jig, pull tile in place and change height settings, engrave the image and boom turns out like this…

I hope this helps others, this would be awesome gifts or sellers.
