Not Laser Made yet. But planning on it.
I started dabbling in screen printing this week. I’ll get to the emulsifiers and chemicals later; but I just wanted something simple and quick. A bandana for a super hero run - got the Captain America tech shirt and socks, but wanted a themed bandana that doesn’t exist.
Cutting with scissors and exacto knives. You get one print per cut.
So you place your paper cut on the fabric, mask off the screen, spread the ink, squeegee it off, and then dry.
Viola. Like I said, first attempt. Good enough for my purposes today.
I will be delighted with the Glowforge. Cutting quicker, more precise, and more intricate will vastly expand my abilities to use this process.
The negative printing with emulsifier might also be improved with a Glowforge, depending on the design. To do that, you need to print on a transparent sheet. I don’t know that transparencies work in a standard laser printer, but cutting card stock or construction paper and developing the emulsifier over that may well work as well.
I see a pretty cool alternate workflow using the Glowforge.
