Step 1: Setting Up Your File
I then created a circle to represent the moon and adjusted the size to my liking. It helped to make the circle first on my original file and place it where I wanted to see how it was going to look. Then I created the same size circle in a different file as I wanted the moon to be orange acrylic in stead of black.
Then to support my piece so it would stand alone I created some triangles that I would later attach to the back of my project. I put those on the same file as the tree because they will be going on the back of the project and the color did not matter to me.
Step 2: Cutting Your File on the Laser and Attaching All the Pieces Together!
Once my items were cut out I had to spray paint the front of my tree and bats black because I could only fine light colored acrylic in the shop. All I had to do was find some black spray paint and paint my acrylic! After that I used a Q-tip and my acrylic cement to attach my items together. First I laid my tree face down and applied a generous amount of cement all along the places my moon would be attaching to. Then I simply repeated this step for the bats and the triangle supports.
Now you have a fun, spooky decoration for your home! I will be placing a candle behind mine to cast spooky shadows on my walls!
