I have been wasting time playing with gimp. Isolated Dobby and experimenting with adding text of different sizes, fonts, and effects. So far I prefer Currier New Bold, 36, no antialiasing, no hinting.

Smoke from etching card stock is powerful stuff. Can't wait for till I start etching Dobby on organic leaves.

Thanks!  My wife is huge into Harry Potter...actually cried when Dobby died. She is between jobs right now, so I think something like this in our house would be halarious.

Well, somehow I missed the replies on this thread, sorry about that guys.

Yeah, I still have all the files we used on the slate coasters. I'll grab them and post them here when I get home tonight.

The Dobby image was something my wife found online and gave to me to engrave. My skills are not that good lol.

Still, thanks for posting the png. I am looking forward to surprising my wife with a plaque like that.
