Picture of Calamity Ganon Tapestry From Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I made a Laser Engraved version of the Calamity Ganon Tapestry from Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I have played through Breath of the Wild three times and devoted easily 500 hours to finding Korok Seeds. This game has destroyed all other video games for me.

On my most recent playthrough, I got to the part where Impa started telling Link this history of Hyrule through the tapestry hanging behind her and I instantly thought, "I could make that"

So here it is! In all its laser engraved, hand-painted glory and today I'm going to teach you how to make it!

Step 1: Find Your Starting Point

Picture of Find Your Starting Point

In our previous Instructables, we always provided the laser files so readers could jump right in.

This time around, we wanted to explain how we create our Laser files, step by step, to teach something a little bit more difficult. We start every project by finding our source material.

  • The image from the game is quite fuzzy (first image above) because, within the game, it is supposed to portray a tapestry made 10,000 years ago.
  • After doing a quick google search, I had found someone had taken the time to remaster a clearer version of the Tapestry
    • TIP: When taking a .jpeg and making it into an .SVG file, it is always good to start with a high contrast image.

Cool! Breath of the Wild is awesome!
Looks amazing! Thanks for sharing your process. :)

Not a problem. I really wantsd to tech people this time how to make files rather than just giving them away
