The Universes Pupils // Laser Cutting Labels

As you can see a lot of my samples went wrong due to the velocity of the laser being set too high or too low. I Set the laser cutter to cut through sections of my fabric and then only etch other sections, below is an example of some of the pieces that didn't quite go to plan.

I tried laser cutting three different types of leather to see which gave the best results, I found that PVC seemed to produce an unsual light green tone when etched but real brown leather cut through perfectly after a few nights of different attempted settings on the laser cutter. It was hard to perfect the setting and keep the type readable, but after reducing the power of the laser and increasing the amount of times it passed across my paths I got some much better results.
