GoT scotch Glass
« on: January 09, 2019, 06:21:20 PM »
In preparation for my re-watch of Game of Thrones before the final season I decided that my Scotch glass needed some work.

very nice, you used a rotary  attachment?
did you just engrave straight onto the glass or was there a product you used on the glass?

This glass is square so i did not need the rotary for it. I painted it with  apple barrel black paint before I started the burn.

Is this the paint you used or was it a spray?

Hey what laser did you use? (I am quite the newbie, recently bought a EliksMaker A3 pro and barely know anything ) Would love to learn more, what is your process (I mean how did you do it ) ? I thought  laser cant engrave on glass  :o ?

For that on i just painted the glass a a solid coat of the Apple Barrel black paint and dried it whit a blow drier. I used T2 laser at 1000 speed and .1 for res. With out the paint it would not work but it works a a resist to allow the laser to heat and engrave the glass. On this one i did two passes as i did not like the look after the first one.

I'm not 100% certain but think "Apple Barrel" is just a common brand name and is usually acrylic. I have used multiple types of paint with varying degrees of success (failure). Getting the correct paint, depth & heat has been elusive. Please post your results and recipe.
