When using a laser engraving machine to engrave ceramics, glass, stone, and other materials, sometimes you need to color the processed materials according to your special use needs, if you do not want to paint the items black and do not know how to color these materials, you can use laser paper. Laser paper is available in a variety of colors, such as black, gray, gold, and blue. You can choose the right color according to your needs.
If this is your first time using laser paper, you may not be clear about how to use it. Here I have provided some methods for your reference.
- First, you need to cut the paper to the size of the area to be processed.
- Immerse the paper in water and wait until the paper is completely soaked with water.
- Tear off the side with the colored paper and stick it on the surface of the material you need to laser engrave. In this step, you need to pay attention that there should be no air bubbles between the material and the paper, otherwise it will affect your final processing result.
- Next you just need to wait for the paper to dry completely, or if you are in a hurry, you can use a hair dryer to dry it, but one thing to note is that you need to make sure the paper is completely dry. Then you can start your laser engraving project as normal.
What do you need to be aware of?
When placing the laser paper, try not to put the two sheets together in front of each other. This may cause the paper to stick and not work properly.
Laser paper is available in many colors. It bends easily and does not fade easily, and you can choose from many colors to dye the processed material.
