Leather Flags


3 different coloured flags for Vale, these are all engraved onto died leather, the wold was outlined to make it stand clear from the background engraving. One piece of leather is white on one side and brown on the other, I had the power set a little bit high while engraving the white flag and the marks showed through to the reverse, when the next flag was cut on brown there was no evidence of burning on the reverse, a clear sign that different colours absorb the laser light differently.
