    OK, as promised, here are some pics from the jobs we have done in the past month since we got the CNC machine. We are in Essex N London and I have asked Amari Plastics to send info re Foamex, Dibond, Perspex etc as we have one in Basildon not too far away. Contacted CNCShop.com (thnks Rob) and asked for more info on bits etc..

    Anyways, first set of pics are from a London, West End Show ‘Decade of Dance’. We made a ‘photowall’ for selfies with logo and then cut the lovely ballerina silhouettes too on the CNC from VCarve. Artwork done in Adobe illustrator. The dresses which flanked the foyet display were also designed, dressed and supplied by us:

    The next job was commissioned for the Grandmother of a child who’s 1st Birthday was a couple of weekends ago. She held a garden party and asked for woodland creatures and yet another ‘Photowall’, this time with a woodland image. We did also cut the child’s name and cover this in silver glitter and placed it on the photowall, but I forgot to take a photo of it! All vectors drawn in Adobe illustrator and cut from VCarve to Mach3..

    The third job we are still working on presently. Miam-themed 80’s night. We have also designed artwork for a sign (image below) which I drew first in Adobe illustrator, them brought into Photoshop to add all the effects and bling! 😉 I then used the vector palm tree to import to VCarve in three sections; Palms, Trunk and a base for it to sit in. This will then be mounted to the semi-circle plinths which are 18mm MDF. All other pieces are 12mm MDF:

    This is the artwork for an illuminated sign we are making to go with the palms.

    And this is how it will look when all fixed into stand etc. Still need to coat them with water-based clear.

    Thanks for looking 🙂
