I find myself very jealous of all the uber-lasers/waterjets out there that cut metal people can use for outdoor signage and yard sculptures. Has anyone come across any materials that are weatherproof in the long-term (like years) both in terms of waterproofing and durability? Seems like wood finish will eventually fade (especially on anything thin enough to fit in the forge) and acrylic, while obviously waterproof, is too fragile to last long-term.
While there are many materials you can etch on that might fit the bill, I really want control over the shape as well.
I’m betting the answer is no, but if anyone has come across a material like that, I’d sure love to try it out.
