Acrylic Etching & Design with the Curio
New acrylic etching class with a bit of design aspect thrown into the course
In this 1 hour 18 minute video class we will go through the step-by-step process of setting up an etch design in the Silhouette Studio software, setting up the Silhouette Curio machine to etch, and etching an acrylic blank. We will etch this coaster design 2 ways and work through the design process to get a different look for each coaster.
This class goes beyond just the basics of etching and dives into changing a design up and filling it with different emboss fills to achieve a different end result.
My name is EllyMae and I am the owner of Silhouette Secrets+.
I am a wife, mother, and lover of all things wine (as you'll notice in my projects & posts). I won a Silhouette Portrait in 2013 and the first time I used it, I knew I needed the bigger Cameo. At that time, there was not much information out there, but I found what I could and learned by testing & creating things. I love to learn new things that can be done with the Silhouette machines and have turned that into teaching others what I love to do.
I was encouraged by many to start teaching classes and when the TJC Instructor Program was announced in 2016, I signed up. It was one of the best decisions I've made and have met so many great friends & colleagues just because I took a chance. I now teach private lessons & local classes in the Northern Virginia area. I have also had the privilege to be on staff for the Curio Intensive Retreat in June 2017, staff at the All Things Silhouette Conference June 2017, Nov 2017, staff & an instructor at the ATS Conference in Nov 2018, June 2019, November 2019, Virtual ATS 2020, and the instructor at 2 virtual Curio events in 2020. I love to continue expanding my knowledge of what these amazing machines & software can do.
I look forward to sharing the love of Silhouette with all of you and welcome you on this journey!
