Laser engraving on Leather - filling engraving with paint Answered
I've just had two leather wristbands laser engraved with a custom graphic. Unfortunately, though the engraving is clear and crisp, the dark color of the engraving and the leather makes the graphic hard to see. It is only visible in bright, hard light.
How would I go about making the engraved graphic more visible? I thought about perhaps filling in the engraving with a light-colored paint, but how would I go about doing that? With wood, I would just slop on acrylic paint and then wipe the excess off with a tissue, leaving the paint in the crevasses. But would that also work with leather? Would the paint wipe off properly?
I'm too scared to do anything to the wristbands yet since I've spent a lot of time, effort and money getting them custom engraved. Any advice would be very helpful please! :D
