Playing with photos



New to this, but finding ways to combine my hobbies. I still shoot black & white film, so I have a trove of contrasty images suited to engraving. I’ve also put time into other projects combining etch-and-cut layers to add dimension. This is a combo of the two (the original image follows).


Cool technique! :grinning:


Thanks. Still tweaking, but there are possibilities. Started out messing with setting text plaques with a similar technique.


I really like this multi-level engraving. An interesting alternative to 3D engraving. I’ll be looking forward to seeing more!


Described more here: Dimensional Fun


I really like what you did with both the photo and the signs on the other post.

Yet another thing on my list :slight_smile:


The smoke stain really works with that sign! :sunglasses:


I am new the Glowforge. Could you give me some tip on creating photo’s ? Do I just upload it and go for it or is there a trick to it? Again, I’m super new and a bit hesitant


I love the photo! Very funny. :slight_smile:


Being new to the glowforge, you could probably use this, and a search here for “photo engraving” will get you started!


Thank you. I need to spend some time on it,


Yes, that’s the only one I leave the masking on. It lends the right feel.


My son at 10. He thought he was pretty cool.


I like the T-shirt The Who (?) with the arrow pointing up to a half (aka anonymous) face in the style of Elliott Erwitt.


Both are very nice!
