    Default Laser on Bone Scales

    Well I finally got around to seeing what the laser would do on bone scales so heres a quick zap of my name. I'll mess around with more detail now.

    Thoughts?

    Oh, they're horn scales, not bone scales. Makes much more sense now.

    Still very cool.

    wow, much cleaner than i wouldve expected, is that a freshly lasered piece or have you cleaned/sanded (or whatever is appropriate for bone) it aswell?

    The piece is just as I recieved it and it is freshly engraved, 25 minutes or so ago.
    I did nothing to the scale.

    It's no "Jerry on Cherry", but it is really nice.

    Now you've got me thinking about scales......

    Wow. That's really cool. You may be on to something. Is it possible to laser a symbol or trade mark? I'm thinking of the nasty cheap Filarmonica scales that don't have nickel badges, but just a coloured plastic molded badge -- in particular the scales on the Filly #14 Especial para barabas duras. I've often wondered how you could create a new harp engraving (the Filly trade mark) to put on new scales. Maybe this would be the answer?

    Actually yes it would be easy enough if we had a good file to work with.

    This is very cool, Ray!!
    It'll be interesting to see how the laser engraving working on the different types of media used for scales. Translucents aught to be really fun!!

    Keep up the awesome work.
