Engraved color inlay


Recommended Posts

This is the first project using a process I'm developing for colored engraving, on a Nomad CNC machine, of faux ivory substrates, for inlay into jewelry boxes. The process needs more improvement but I was happy enough with the results to begin a second piece.

It begins with the creation of the artwork in Designer.


The actual oval is smaller than show, at least on my screen, about 130 mm wide. The lines to be engraved are 0.15 mm apart. Here is the graphic depiction of the lines to be engraved by the machine. The red color represents one pass out of a total of seven necessary to keep the colors separate.


The final product inset into the box.


The box itself, a gift to my niece. She wanted a "tree" and "daisies" although I gave her Tidytips instead.
