Step 1: Colour

The front of a laser cut plywood box was coloured with water colour crayons. A wet paint brush was then used to spread the colour.

Step 2: Laser

When the painted box front was dry, it was etched on the laser.

To line up the box, a template was first etched onto a scrap piece of wood.

The finished etching reveals the wood underneath the paint for an interesting artistic effect!
