AWESOME Zippo Lighter engraving PROCESS with a 100W fiber laser. This is my own Armor Edition deep engraved after my own drawings and design.
I take a Brushed Brass Zippo Armor Edition which is thicker than a regular one. This makes it perfect for deep laser engraving. First, I do some sketches directly on the lighter until I am satisfied. After that I draw directly on paper and scan it into my computer.
I then process the drawings in multiple programs and cut it out in pieces to fit the specific sides of the Zippo lighter. I use 5 different images to engrave this one. Front, front edge, back, back edge and top of lid.
The laser engraving burns the lighter, so I polish the lighter to nearly mirror blank again and shortly after I add special wax to give it some old patina.
