Pattern filling a shape in easel. diamond drag engraving


I know that V carve can add a pattern fill to a shape but I haven’t got the money for that at the moment.

So I am trying to come up with a work around …

I have a design in easel set to a fill cut at 3mm. I want to overlay a pattern filled shape that will be set to zero depth. The carve will then only cut through where my design is set at 3mm and I will be left with a pattern fill.

I will mainly use this for drag engraving.

Any one tried this or have any patterns the can share

would it help if i add that i want to use some kind of hatch or cross hatch pattern?
