Finally put back together. My first puzzle made on the glowforge. A couple of burn marks where the masking rolled up but overall I am happy with the result.
Nice what material is it?
I used a fine art paper (hot press bright) mounted to chipboard and coated with a matte sealer.
Did you coat before or after cutting?
If before you can probably wipe the smoky parts off.
If not you can go into your art and extract just the few pieces that got smoky and cut replacements.
It’s a really nice piece, you took a lot of care with it, no need to stand for that sort of imperfection
Coated before cutting! I put the puzzle in a tub of salt and gave it a good shake… this is what is left. It’s no worries… I plan to make more! I have moved across country since I made the puzzle… I doubt I would be able to recreate the pieces now
So much detail! Nicely done.
If you are going to make more, if you haven’t already you need to read @jbmanning5’s puzzle posts. Here is a link to a list of his posts.
Yes! Thank you!
For masking, I use either one of these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0015DMGD0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_ktP5DbMMB1X8G
I’ve found there’s a middle ground between not pressing hard enough, and pressing too hard and making the masking more difficult than it needs to be when weeding the pieces.
Thanks! Yes, I use a brayer as well… I think I just rushed it out of excitement to cut LOL
Well you’re ahead of me, when I was doing puzzles I wasn’t masking, I just used baby wipes to clean up the residue! Definitely a little more time consuming, but better results with masking. You’ll figure it out!
Gorgeous design! What program did you use to make the puzzle part?
I used this one!! Jigsaw puzzle generator
