I have a potential customer that is graduating from dental school and she wants to give her parents and grandparents something that commemorates it. She wants a lab coat engraved on a piece of glass. However I have only line drawings of lab coats and line drawings don't look good on glass. I can't figure out how to fill it in to where it looks good. Any ideas?

In Corel and most other graphics programs, there is a fill tool, and for glass, use about 50% black. Test on a scrap of glass to get the effect you want. First, though, you will have to connect lines or trace them with your mouse to have solid shapes with boundaries that can be filled. You could also use another tool such as spray paint or brush and do it freehand with the mouse.

Try these-- I found this online and tried to accentuate the details, and I eliminated the background...

Ffirst one is a positive, second is the negative version, which you'll want to use on glass--

If you have a photo or halftone setting, try running it as-is. If not, make it into a 300 dpi bitmap in Corel and try it...

I'd put her name on the pocket also for that personal effect :D
