My daughter, the pet groomer (StylaPet.com) also does art in mediums other than fur on occasion. I was visiting and saw this scratch art on the wall that she did. I took a photo and wanted to see what I could do with it on Hiakari.
I had to clean up my reflection and compensate for the loss of contrast due to the glass in the frame.
Then I did some tests to see what I might expect with different “Min Power” settings. In the end, ensuring that the contrast was high and the white was pure white made the biggest difference.
I masked some painted plywood and engraved with Vary Power and 70% power. Afterwards, I brushed out the char. I wiped black acrylic into the engraving and removed the masking. The result turned out well. I’m amazed given the quality of the starting image.
