Custom glass etching
Submitted to Show Off
The How-to on engraving reminded me of a project I thought I'd share.
I've made a few stencils with my reliable old Dremel 3d20 printer and then taped those to glass and used our blast media cabinet to do the etching.
Just a few layers of PLA stands up to glass bead blasting quite well. In the photo the shadow effect on the antlers is due to the fact that I flipped the stencil and did the other side of the glass just as an experiment and they were just slightly out of alignment.
The final product was a framed and matted photo with the elk on either side, reversed, over a dark contrasting mat. Sadly I don't have a photo of that as it was not my picture being framed.
