Scan N Cut Saturday – Creating an Engraved Zodiac (or Anything Else) Plaque

This week I have a quick idea to share with you about creating celebratory or consolation plaques using the Zoom Precision engraving tool and a large metal blank.

A way to secure a special occasion, celebration or commiseration for years to come.

This style works really well with the anodized metal blanks as etching into the surface reveals the raw metal underneath and makes it stand out.

To see how I set this up in Canvas Workspace, please check out the video below and of course if you have any questions, please feel free to pop them on YouTube or below.
