Rather than a plain tutorial today, I thought I’d show you how some artwork created in CorelDRAW is used to make some wine extra special. I know that many of you in the United States will be celebrating Thanksgiving this week and that often includes a little bit of wine. In this case, the wine is Poizin. Yes, I spelled that right.
CorelDRAW user and awards shop owner Dennis Wilkerson is featured in today’s video. No matter where the artwork originates, it goes into CorelDRAW. He then outputs the artwork via a laser engraver or creates a Rayzist mask for sandblasting. The mask you see in the video was done using the Rayzist film.
In the video, you’ll see Dennis apply the mask to the bottle and prep it for sandblasting. Then he’ll sandblast a logo onto each bottle by hand. Once the bottles are etched, he paints them “blood red”. The last step is to add wax to the top of the bottle. This is just one of the many “niche” markets where CorelDRAW is used. And in this industry, CorelDRAW is the standard!
