Hamsa Hand and Lotus Magnets (Painted!)


Wanted to try some painted laser engraved … so today’s project:




very nice.
I had known that to be the hamsa hand, as used by jews and muslims. Buddha hand is the name of a citrus fruit.
either way: nice job (especially the multicolor lotus)


Neat! I like the idea of using the brayer so you don’t get paint into the engravings.


Great work.


Yeah me too. Hamsa means five in Arabic, for the 5 fingers of the hand. It is literally a “stop sign” (imagine a traffic cop telling you to stop) against the evil eye/evil spirits.
