Circuit Board Pendant: P by Llyzabeth Circuit Board Pendant: P by Llyzabeth
Another pendant made from the new resin (Easy Cast brand) :iconfandragon: and :iconcaptainslack: gave me for Christmas, and the new circuit board they found for me; it's huge, with a lot of great patterns, so I'll be cutting pieces of that one for a while.

This one will be in my display at the San Diego Comic-Con art show too, woooo!

What do you use to cute these?  :?  I feel like my x-acto knife would have a hell of a time with a circuit board.

At first I was using heavy-duty scissors on the thinnest boards I could find, but even that was hell on my hands. Now I'm using a diamond-edged cutting wheel on my Dremel, it works WAY better, and I get the edges smooth with an X-acto.

I had to invest in a professional-grade face-mask, though, the kind with the replaceable filters on the sides. It was about $45, but way worth it, because cutting the boards with power tools kicks up all kinds of dust, and that's probably way more chemicals than you really want to breathe :)
