This is my first attempt on slate. Engrave on this material looks so good.
That looks really good. Is that natural slate or composite slate?
@Duncan_Caine didn’t know actually… I throwed the packaging… but in a round piece that I have it says it’s 100% natural slate. Think this was the same brand.
Nice design. Do you the graphic available for download somewehre?
That will be natural slate, it gives a fantastic finish and is even dishwasher safe. I do a lot of placemats and coasters in slate and in some you will find the engraving will actually come through with a gold tint.
Where do you get the slate?
If you apply a spray gloss before engraving it can help the white of the engraving pop more
+skynarf can you give another source for people like me without facebook or at least the link to the specific group? thx

There are a lot of slate shingled roofs in my area. I should find some take off and try this!
I find used slate roofing tiles on Craigslist.
@syknarf May I ask if you vector, or raster engraved it? It looks fantastic! I use K40 Whisperer and often wonder if I should blue line a piece or black line
