    my lated work using linux

    I know this is off topic and if its too far off I'm sorry just delete and I can post it in a different area.

    I got board at work last night so I had my wife make up some stencils to apply on a beer mug for my brother when I go see him next week in VA. He has mentioned that he would like mugs before so he can have them in his game room / bar.

    The design(I know isn't much) was made in inkscape and the stencil was made out of vinyl using tux plot. Then I put the stencil on the beer mug cover everything else up and put it in the sand blaster pulled everything off clean it up and here is what I ended up with.

    It has great possibilities.

    I'll bet it's a lot of fun, too.

    Ya it is that was my first large sand blasting job just to try it out I have done a few before but never really too it serious but were having more people ask about that kind of stuff - mirrors - windows - and glass signs - so I just thought I would try some out for my brother. One didn't turn out that great but I learned.

    Most of the time we do signs,banners, t-shirts or decals here is a few of our normal stuff

    I wish I still had acces to a sandblaster.
