So I made that mask (see MOAG) and part of it used gold cardstock.
You can see the product page here, though i am not sure it’s available anymore:
What’s interesting about it is that it just can’t cut all the way through. The metallic layer appears to be actual metal foil. This led to an interesting method:
Cut from the back, (350/50/1x) and you get perfect score lines. You can then punch it out, it peels out almost like you’re opening a really easy pull-top can. The end result is a perfect piece, no scorching, no char.
OH my goodness peeps - I’m super sorry about that!
I live and work in a very busy shop - my glowforge is an extra-curricular toy for me at the moment -so I tend to drift off this board until get back tp playing with it. LOL
I thought that would be easy to answer, but I can’t find my note book right now! But I can tell you I first used the “thin leather” setting, and it wasn’t too much different from what I used for the wood card stock, which I could find: 1000 speed & 20 power for etching and 450/60 for cutting. I think I may have used 40 power for the metallic card stock etching–but it did vary slightly between the colors I used to expose the core fully. I recommend erring on side of starting low and work your way up on the power until you get the look you want, since what you need could vary by brand and the weight/thickness of the stock, of course.
