If a a great font. Watch, you’ll see it everyday now.
Horse party. I got the biggest giggle out of that. I haven’t tried slate yet but I did pick up some at the dollar store to try out.
…as opposed to a house party
And bonus - real shellac is just bug poop and booze, so it’s laser compatible! (“Shellac” is sometimes used as a generic term for varnishes, though, which may not be; check your ingredients).
A new tibit to bother my manicure loving friends to see their reactions
I did, it’s real shellac from the lac beetle…
I did before.
Just like the cocktails I had last night!
FDA approved food safe bug poop and booze!
(Note that Titebond III is also FDA approved, though not for direct food contact like bug poop & booze).
Remember if you want to use the font for commercial use it is 39.00
It is in the read me file.
Any thoughts on whether the engraved slate is weather-resistant? Or will the markings fade with the first rainstorm? I was thinking of making some miniature headstones for our pet graveyard and thought some engraved slate might look nice.
Should be fine. I’ve had this one in front of my house for 6(ish) months now. Few rain storms, few snowstorms. Still looks good.
i’ve done a fair share of coasters and the engrave always stands out. sometimes it’s a stark white against the dark slate, and sometimes it’s a more muted grey color, but it will always stand out if you engrave with the correct settings (ha. guess i should have said that first). i use shellac on all of my slate, too! it dries super quickly and it’s nothing too scary chemically!
Bug poop and booze - I believe I have some of both around here
Yeah, you have to search for the best results with each new batch of slate for sure. I read an article talking about where the best slate for lasering came from and how much the grain size, color and how it reacts to the laser can really vary. I may be remembering it wrong, but I think they said the stuff from Germany was the cream of the crop.
How do you get the fonts to show up ? What programs will run them?
You load them into your operating system, then they show up in any application that supports fonts just like all the others.
On a Mac, you just open it (defaults to Font Book) and click the “Install font” button.
