The ultimate vanity object

Or ultimate heirloom. This was made by taking a scan of my wife with a Kinect and editing it. When printing I changed filament and then smoothed the print. The scannect doesn't take a lot of details, so this is a less detailed cameos, but it works okay.

I learned something when making this. The cameo is ABS, the setting is PLA. But I accidentally glued them together before smoothing the cameo. I figured the acetone would only effect the ABS, so I popped them in the smoother together. Didn't know acetone softens PLA. Permanently apparently. Doesn't smooth it but makes it soft enough that I can't use it any more. So I had to make another one.
