Step 1: Step 1: Find a photo or image
Things You Will Need:
-Large sheet of aluminum 0 .090" - 0.2" thick
-Editing software (I use Gimp, it's free!)
-Vector graphics editing software (I used Inkscape...again it's free!)
-Locate someone who can provide CNC waterjet or plasma cutting services. Many local machine shops offer this service.
Step 2: Step 2: Convert Image to a stencil
Step 3: Step 3: Convert to .dxf file
Step 4: Step 4: Have the image cut!
After it's cut, sand the showing surface, spray with primer and spray paint a dark color. When the metal art is held against a light colored wall the image can be seen clearly!
