Hi, I’m KitCameo! This is my first time posting here, but I was one of the very first buyers of the Glowforge when they started the crowdfunding campaign. I’m usually stuck in the black hole that is Facebook, so I very rarely post on any other forums. I wanted to finally introduce myself here, though, for a couple of reasons. First, because I wanted to share what it is that I do, and what I’m hoping to use my Glowforge for, and second, because I want to familiarize other Glowforge owners with my designs so that if they stumble upon them uploaded somewhere else, that they don’t mistake them for public domain designs (I’ve had many people steal my designs throughout the past few years, so I’m trying to get ahead of it here.)
I’m an artist, who started out with glass etching in 2007, and then moved on to many other mediums throughout the years. My latest venture has been intricately designed, hand-cut paper snowflakes, mostly with pop culture themes. Because of the pop culture snowflakes, several of my pieces were shared virally over the past few years, and people seem to really like them. What I’m hoping to use my Glowforge for is to create laser cut versions of snowflakes I’ve already designed, and either use them as more durable art pieces, or place those designs onto other surfaces, such as lamp shades, leather, glasses, and acrylic pendants.
Below is an example of one of my snowflakes that I created for an art show last year, “The Munsters Snowflake”, but if you’d like to take a look at some of my other work, here is my website: www.kitcameo.com
