Reflect on a job well done By: Kianta asplund

What Do you use a mirror for?

In society we use mirrors as we change our apperance

Often times memories are locked away and forgotten

Some people use Time capsules to preserve memories rather then share special times in their lives

Why not use a mirror to capture a memory instead?

Mark the mirror using a Fiber Laser Etcher

Create the Design using CorelDraw or Power Point

  • Start By creating a Canvas in your preferred program equal to your mirror size (mine was 24" x 12")
  • Using CorelDraw or power point convert your images to Black and White and arrange as desired
  • Using the 20 watt etcher as a Printer "burn" the image at 100% power and 75% speed
  • Depending on the quality of mirror you may require 2-3 passes to make the mirror transparent
  • Add color by painting clear sections or simply add colored vinyl or paper

If you purchase the laser engraver there are other creative options and uses for it

Easily mark or engrave material such as wood

Etch painted wood for contrasted text

Laser cut thin wood, plastic, or other synthetic materials

Etch glass items with custom images

Custom design plaques and awards of stone or composites

laser etch metal with logos or label your tools to prevent theft

Thanks for stopping by and good luck with your projects
