Handmade Acrylic Pen

I made the pen for my wife’s friend and engraved her name on it. I was experimenting and used manual setting of 900/50. Would like to go a little deeper so next time i’m going to use 900/90.IMG_2271

I put this our here today just for geek2nurse so she would have something new to read. :laughing:

Nice!

And if you want more contrast with the letters, you can use dye over it–I’ve done quite a few acrylic key fobs w/ leather dye (as what I have, since I do mostly leather goods) and the dye colors the etched area but wipes off the smooth surface easy & is permanent (at least passes the toothbrush scrub test).

No @geek2nurse needs something to keep her occupied and out of trouble…:rofl:
