Voyage by Fred Larson

In this project Fred wanted to etch onto a brick for his assignment. He wanted the word to wrap around the brick. To do this we cut the letter forms up and etched two separate files (one for the front of the brick and one for the side). By aligning the edge of the image with the previously etched side of the brick he was able to create the illusion of a continuously etched surface.

Many different materials react differently when etched. For instance some synthetic fabrics will change different colors when etched. In this case the brick turned a dark grey color.
