more low poly

I have been doing a lot of low poly sculptures. I change the pdfs to svgs if they are not already svgs and cut them on my cricut machine. the cutting drawing and scoring on the cricut makes it so easy to do more than one.

New Zealand Cricut is running a competition. Hop on over join the group by answering membership questions and enter the competition. It has a fantastic prize. I have been playing with the smart materials and making long cuts and today I have used the Cricut smart green vinyl to make 2 long cuts so I could decorate my display board. The Maker 3 and the Explore 3 are awesome machines well worth the money they are being sold for. I have a video below on cutting the smart vinyl as a long cut. Take a look at the video and see how the long vinyl cuts.

Fonts in Cricut Design Space with glyphs and swashes.

Have you wanted to put those fancy swirls and curls on your font in Cricut Design Space, a fonts is what you are reading right now and the shape can be many and varied. When I wanted to know what a Swash and a Glyph were I checked with Mrs Google. Well basically a glyph is a representation of the font like the letter "a" and a swash is a typographical flourish, such as an exaggerated serif, terminal, tail, entry stroke, etc., on a glyph. Now there were lots of other words in there as well but basically a glyph is the basic font and a swash is the curly bits that are added. Now to put them into Cricut Design space, go to the Character Map (you will find the UWP character map in windows 10 and check out the fonts in your computer. In the video I have tried to explain how you put the swashes into Design space for non cricut fonts.
