Introduction: Cat on a Shard of Glass
This is my first bad instructable.
I cleaned the garage, and I found broken glass pieces. I thought about doing a little present for my young friend cats lover.
You need a piece of glass, a PC, paper, tape and electric engraver
Step 1: Write the Name
a) Write the name you want and with the character you want (I used "coca cola" characters).
b) Once satisfied with the result, I've saved the screen with the "Stamp" button.
c) I opened the old "paint" program, and I pasted the image of the screen.
d) I resized the image.
Step 2: Turns the Written
For best results it is better that the incision is made on the glass behind it, so the written and disegne must be incised on the contrary.
e) with the command "Horizontal Flip" reflects the word.
f) Press the message according to the piece of glass dimensions and your judgment
Step 3: Draws the Cat
g) drawing the cat with "the utmost of your artistic power" on the same piece of paper written in the place you like.
(In my design would seem a curious cat)
Step 4: Fixed Glass
h) with pieces of tape attached to the glass piece of paper
Step 5: The Cat
i) engrave the outline of the cat with the electric engraver
Step 6: ..and the Name
l) engrave the outline of the letters
(controls the job several times on a black background)
Step 7: Fill the Letters
m) engrave the inside of the Letters and marked some contours of the cat. Once the glass washed, the result should be ok
Step 8: P.s.
I was thinking of building a small wooden boat and the glass piece (with its triangular shape) could be the Latin sail, but I was in a hurry to make my first instructable.
Step 9: P.s.s.
I hope that the result is better than my english!
