Laser Engraving Stainless Steel With Mustard.
« on: August 27, 2018, 10:16:20 AM »
Just wondered if anyone here had tried laser engraving stainless steel with mustard.
If so, what were the results? and what wattage laser?
Just been watching a couple of vids on YT.
Like this one:

Haha, yeah I thought it was a bit strange. Must be some sort of chemical reaction.
I would try it but I'm out of mustard.

My dementia kicked in. Went to the grocery store for the mustard and came home with milk. I'm planning on experimenting with mustard on glass.

Well, my traditional mustard is not working.
Tried two different objects
T2Laser, 50 speed, full power, 2.5w

***EDIT***
Did one with 3 passes, non stop. I got VERY minimal markings

Gonna try with dried mustard, different mustard and maybe some other pieces.
Will report back when able
