So I’ve been working a little fruitlessly on some Laser Thursday project that haven’t quite come to fruition yet. About ten minutes before we started last night I got a text from my wife of a picture our five year old son drew. He’s been just a little excited about Star Wars lately
When I got the text I immediately knew i wanted to make him an ornament. I brought the picture into photoshop, cleaned it up to isolate the black lines, then added a white background and black outline.
With help from @dan that image was translated into and illustrator file and cut and engraved from the same red and white two tone acrylic I used for the wrestlers (same piece actually). Before removing the backing, I taped off the “lightsaber” section and colored in all of the rest of the engraving black with a sharpie.
As a last step I cut a small hole in the head, added an ornament hook and hung it on the tree for him to discover in the morning.
