Has anyone ever used their laser on a terra cotta or clay pot? I have an Epilog Mini24 45W and a curious nature and loads of pots in my shed that are just too tempting! And if you have, what settings would you recommend?
Thanks so much,
Leigh
Still testing my new laser and not sleeping much ;)

Haven't tried it, but I've also thought about it.
I don't have a rotary attachment, which limits what I could do.
For some reason I'd be tempted to wet the pot first, maybe thats because I've shattered a few dry ones trying to cut them in half.
If no one comes up with a saftey issue here, please do try it and let us know! :)

They laser fine but require power , mostly they give a dark mark with a little depth , the colour of the mark depends on power and the pots composition , but a good starting point is something like 100% power and 20% speed.

Clay should turn to a black glass with enough power. Maybe try slow vector lines.
