Mirror Tile

New to my GF but very happy with it. Taking pictures of mirrors is rather difficult but it looks much better in person. I scoured the site a bit for settings and tried a few different runs and this was my best result.

Full power. Full Speed. Material Depth of .5" (It isn’t really)
Applied a layer of film, and wet it slightly before etching.

I have some design aspects to learn for sure, but life is constantly a WIP.

Hey, nice work. Mirrors do well engraving from the rear. If you do another, you might want to try flipping your design horizontally and coming at it form the back, it removes the ghosting double image you get engraving on the front.

I’ve seen that, and I do appreciate the feedback. This went this way because of where it was going to sit, it seemed like it would pop out better. I have a few ideas cooking for the back etches though!
