Optimus Prime Laser etch

I wanted to experiment with the laser cutter, using different power levels and speeds to see if I could use it to create some etched artwork. Basically I wanted to make some vector art on the laser cutter.

My first experiment was Optimus Prime as I was deeply entrenched in the Artboy Transformers exhibition. It was a shame I could not get this piece into the exhibition. I love how it came out.

The piece was etched, then backfilled with red paint to bring out the laser etched lines. Simple technique with awesome results.

More than meets the eye!
