How do a cut and etch a belt out on a laser cutter when the leather is larger than the machine?!
Hi I would like to cut and etch leather to make belts. However, the hides are large and even if I roughly cut the size it may fit width wise but length wise it will be too long. I could perhaps try to line it up then shift it along but this isn't very precise and if I'm etching a pattern I fear I wouldn't line it up very well.... Also does anyone know what to treat leather with after it's been etched? after my experimentation it smells and leaves a black residue on your skin if you touch it. I appreciate all and any answers! cheers, Lara.
