Default Engraving tutorial

If you are engraving plexi to use in a case mod project, it is common practice to use LEDs to add some light to your design, bringing it to life. A useful trick is to engrave to different depths to alter the brightest of the light: if you engrave three lines at different depths, the deepest will shine the brightest. Used appropriately, this technique will produce a feeling of depth and produce highlights to an engraving.

Think of your Dremel like you would a car: while it may be capable of high speeds, the higher the speed the more difficult it is to handle. Maximum control is had at lower speeds: the bit is less likely to skip acros the surface, and you will avoid melting the tyres acrylic/plexi you're working on.

For the artistically inclined only

Far too complicated for me.

same here.
You can use printouts or have an artist do the scetching for you.
I'm pretty good with a dremel, but I just can't draw.
