My good friend and her husband have some stock in a local winery and are planning to go collect their annual ‘liquid’ dividend this coming weekend. She suggested that I make some things up to send along with her to promote the winery’s interest in some Glowforge creations.
I have lately been making some round pins with Christmas themes on them, so just narrowed it down to things only wine related. The round ones are about 1.5” and the smaller ones are about 1”….all cut from scrap…this time some PG Maple hardwood. I colored them with my paint pens. Coloring them makes all the difference in the world.
I glued ‘tack’ style pins on the backs. Got my images from the Noun Project. The small red one has a ‘glass of wine’ charm on it…which is a bit difficult to make out in the photos. I am awaiting an order of heavy black, textured card stock from Amazon, which I hope will make the engraved text on the cards more legible than it turned out on this not-so-great quality of paper. I am pleased though with the overall look of everything. I’m especially fond of the one with the dangly little charm on it and plan to expand on that idea.
Thank you. Mostly, just very carefully! Most of my paint pens have fine enough tips that I can manage pretty well. Add to that, I’m pretty much OCD and work well with tiny stuff. You can also take advantage of the masking and paint certain parts before removing the masking, which leaves nice clean lines. I’m still learning, too.
(BTW…on the round pins, there is no paint on the main part…it’s just the bare wood.)
