I am etching a logo on 1/16" IPL Heavy Metal Gold. Looks really good, but I’m having an issue getting the middle pint glass of the logo solid black. I’ve attached the logo image. Then, you’ll see the following:
- Image of 3 sequentially where I turned up the power from a start of like 40 to full and also (on others not photo’d here) turned up the pattern density to most dense
- I am using Convert to Dots. Convert to patterns made a funny pattern. I do not understand Vary Power yet (super newbie) but in the preview in the app it doesn’t seem like a great idea. Any explanation of Vary Power is appreciated.
- The final of the 3, the most right one, gives the most black center, but it’s way too strong for the writing.
Please note, this was done from a png and jpg, both about the same. Would it help to open and export it from Illustrator?
Any help/insight to achieve this is appreciated. Thanks!
