Crafting in Virtual Space

I have started a new class at SUNY New Paltz taught by Arthur Hash.  For the class we are supposed to keep a blog.  So check back here to see what I am working on! 

For the first project we are working with the laser cutter on 2D projects.  The laser cutter will not cut through metal, but will etch into the surface, if you have a coating over the metal.  I spray painted some metal and then used to laser cutter to etch in some patterns.  Not sure what I will do with them yet.
