Lithophane, first one :)

Post by crocky »

Hi,

This one is a little rough and has not even been cleaned :) 6 mm chopping board, it has not been taken from the kitchen either!

For a first time attempt it is fairly good, now I have to play with speeds and feeds :)

Warning - Making lithophanes can be addictive and may result in family and friends being friendlier than usual :)

Have Fun Bob!

That was the first cut with PhotoVCarve, so for a first it was pretty good considering the material that I used.

Got to mash the speeds a bit and have another go :)
