Three Things; Flashback Friday – Laser Cutting Old Sketches

Laser cutting old sketches

Today we looked through some of Kris’s sketches he snapped on an old camera phone and we found some ones we thought were pretty cool.

Quick bird sketches snapped on Kris' camera phone

These wonderful bird cameos have potential even if the camera phone shot doesn’t do them justice, we’ll have to dig out the original sketchbook and digitise them ready for laser etching.

Sketch of badger wearing a scarf cameo

This badger looks particularly seasonal in his scarf. Kris decided he’d turn him into a cameo brooch. He was digitised and traced by Kris then popped through the laser cutter.

Here he is out the other side, a handsome cameo brooch that would look smart on a tweed lapel or Arran sweater.

Kris undertakes commissions using sketches he is sent or can produce artwork to a set brief. If you’d like to come and design and make something yourself on our laser cutter then book in for one of our creative laser cutting courses and let your imagination run wild.
