Helpful Hint

  • * This week's helpful hint is from “Top Tips” from 2017 in MAKE Magazine
    • Add Color To Laser Engraving: On the YouTube channel, Laser Wood Minnesota, they offer this great tip for coloring fine-detail laser engraving. Used a dye meant for coloring epoxy (such as TransTint), mixed with denatured alcohol. It’s easy to apply and you simply wipe the surface clean which leaves only the deeper engraved surfaces with dye in them.

Topics

  • Maker Fair scheduled for THIS WEEKEND, September 24-26. Fair being hosted by MSOE
    • CALL TO MEMBERS: A link has been shared with members if you would like to display a project or sell your wares at the Faire,
    • Please sign up to volunteer!
  • Flame Effects for the Artist Workshop, Sept 24 Sept 25 and 26th Viola, WI

Safety Note

  • Proper first aid for cuts: Rinse the cut or wound with water and apply pressure with sterile gauze, a bandage, or a clean cloth. If blood soaks through the bandage, place another bandage on top of the first and keep applying pressure. Raise the injured body part to slow bleeding. When bleeding stops, cover the wound with a new, clean bandage.
