Re: Hooked on miniatues

With regard to signing the back of work, I often engrave directly into the piece and I've also got a pyrography pen, recently bought a branding iron from ebay here in the UK which you can see the result of below.

Mayan Calendar

After being involved with CNC software for well over 20 years I finally had an excuse to make the Mayan Calendar as my daughters class were studying it at school - I wrote about it on the Vectric Labs Blog here: http://vectriclabs.blogspot.co.uk/2016/ ... endar.html
