Try and use some reclaimed wood like I did. Stay green my homies!
Step 1: Find Your Photo on Google
Step 2: Open the Photo in Photoshop
Step 3: Grayscale That Badboy
This is the first step to getting it ready for the laser
Step 4: Play With the Brightness and Contrast
Play with the settings until you get a photo that is all black and white. A little gray is okay. It just wont etch as deep as the black.
Step 5: Open the Photo in Adobe Illustrator
For this I am going to be just making a small necklace.
I made the cut lines and now all we have to do is send this to the laser cutter now and we will have this one of a kind necklace!
Step 6: Wear Your New Piece
Check them out if you haven't already!
Also please visit my Etsy shop and view some other pieces that my beautiful girlfriend and I have made
I have included the file if you have access to a laser cutter.
