An Xart creation of a lady in red for Valentine's day, this makes for a perfect gift for someone. Made from Acrylic and paint.
Step 1) For this project an image was created with the use of Xart, A lady within a heart was asked and this was the image received. This image was entered into the canvas.
Step 2) In this step a heart is entered into the canvas from the shapes list. This heart is resized to a larger lay out. Once the size was decided the masking feature was used with the Xart image to create a heart shaped image.
Step 3) Now that the image is masked and is in a heart shape it is not only inverted but also reversed so it will engrave opposite of what it looks like on the painted (red) acrylic.
Step 4) Once the engraving was finished a simple wipe with alcohol to clean the engraved area. Once this was done a spray of white paint over the engraving brought the 2 tone of red and white to life from the front view. This makes for a special art piece that can be given to someone special.
