I tried a new technique for making a brass label. I hasten to add that the technique is new only to me.
The label after engraving on the CNC mill
The contrast of the black on brass makes the wording easier to read.
BUT. I should have waited for the paint to dry completely before sanding it. Some of the dust has been embedded in the still wet paint, reducing the gloss and making it a bit dull and fuzzy.
Also, the surface needs to be finished with a finer grade of wet and dry. Then lacquered.
