31  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / A story of 10 penguins on: November 05, 2013 12:06:05 PM
A while ago I was asked to make a large Penguin Suncatcher for auction to support the running costs of an online live trivia game site and 10 smaller ones as fixed price items. So, we borrowed some time at our local glass shop and cut out the penguins. I made the large one which was duly auctioned and just two of the smaller ones as take up seemed to be very slow. Actually, none of the smaller ones were sold at all! So I was left with them to use in some way myself: the two that I had already made were trimmed from the suncatchers (which had the site name on it) and became fridge magnets; three more became "The Three Wise Penguins" and the last five went into "Beware of Penguins Bearing Gifts".

I like the effect of lighting the piece from behind like this.

You are surprised by my choice of model? Of course, it was a slice of toast!

I buy only Silhouette branded blades for the machine (Because nobody else makes them and the metal ones are, I think, too heavy and put a strain on the motor, although other ppl do use them)- sometimes I use their cutting mats too, but usually I use Cricut mats that are cheaper anyway. Silhouette vinyl is rubbish and to be avoided at all costs. Most in the USA (I am in the UK) use Oracal vinyl. I think you can even get free samples each month from Oracal by registering with them. Another source are places that have offcuts from their own business use - some get it free (like I do from a local sign shop) while others pay just a small amount for the stuff they would otherwise throw away. For the small amount you need, it can be quite cheap.

I have the Silhouette Cameo which can cut up to 12 inch wide materials. They have recently brought out a cheaper one, the Portrait which cuts up to A4 width (approx letter size width). I love mine but it is a steep learning curve but there are a ton of tutorials on utube for the Cameo which will work for both. I did have an earlier version called a Craft Robo and these can still sometimes be picked up on Ebay for a reasonable price. They all use the free Silhouette Studio software.

I actually use a program designed to work with my digital cutter ( the same one I use for making stencils for etching dichroic glass) and use for other things as glass is a very new craft for me. It is Silhouette Studio and the basic version is a free download. It enables me to trace the parts of the image that I want to recreate and put in some colour to guide me too. It definitely makes the job a lot easier than it would be any other way, although I know it is also possible to do the same with layers in many other graphics programs.
