my first try with photo v carve

Post by craftyfifer »

I purchased photo v carve yesterday and tried it out today.

I tried it on oak and pine but had no joy.

Tried it on corian, and this was the result. I think i lost the tip of my blade at some point so the quality isn't perfect by any means.

What are you trying to do with pic? A lithophane is made with corian and you invert the carving in the program.

I wasn't trying to produce a lithophane. I just tried the sample little boy on a piece of corian that i had. I've got white corian 6mm coming to me, and will give the lithophane a go.

But for now i was just trying to work with th program, as I've never done this before.

Im sure i,ll master it lol

Thank you for your advice on the lithophane, I've read up on what to do, so will post up my trials and hopefully not tribulations.

regards alex

Really can't see it up close, good for first time. When you upload pics use upload attachment for your pics.
