Let's make some laser cut stained glass! This hand-drawn aloe succulent plant is ready for your Glowforge or any other laser cutter. This stained glass SVG download includes is ready to print - choose your colors and go! Once completed, you can make your own minimalist stained glass style aloe plant, and you can sell your work, as the price includes commercial licensing for physical product (details below).
DETAILS: The sample you see in the photo was made on a 40W Epilog with a 12x18" bed, using 1/8" thick acrylic. I cut the outline first - the "solder" - and then kerfed the inlays - the "glass" - based on my machine's laser width and shape. Then I cut those out, inserted them into the outline, added a little bit of acrylic glue to make sure they never, ever come out, and voila! A very quick, repeatable kind of "stained glass" artwork. The current cut size is set to 10" x 10".
SVG FILES: Every download includes instructions, a Glowforge ready file, and a file made for other laser cutters (with a thinner line). Files include an outline layer and an inlays layer.
BACKGROUND: I am a stained glass artist who creates both artwork and pattern designs, and I started making SVGs of my stained glass patterns after hearing from my clients that they wished there was a different type of stained glass - a safer and lighter kind that was kid-friendly and (mostly) cat-proof. After doing a ton of experimenting, I'm excited to bring these SVGs to you so you can have fun making these stained glass patterns in a medium other than glass. If you do make them and post them on social media, I hope you'll tag @glassyrockarts, @stainedglasslasercut, or use the hashtag #stainedglasslasercut!
