Wow. Stunning!

Thanks Domenic, I think I even surprised myself with the results

Neat stuff!

Did you prepare the surface in any way? or was the glass resting on a specific material?

Daniel, I applied 2 light coats flat matt spray paint then invert image before importing into Lightburn.

The result is really fantastic.

One more question: What colour did you use? Normal acrylic paint, black, white, or rubber spray?

Hi Salvi, just use standard solvent based flat black. strong odour and dust. Local supplier has just started getting Water based Acrylics so will give them a go. Color depends on the image although I do prefer black

Very nice. Is the glass actually etched or just the paint burnt away?

Thanks Graham, I’ll have to try this out on my Emblaser 2.

 Hi Jared, The glass becomes etched as the paint heats and creates tiny frosting effect
