I have a project where I am making a back lit sign. I want to use white acrylic for the background then use red acryilc for the in-set lettering. I guess I would call this an inlay. I have done a couple of tests where cut the spaces for the letters out of the background and then cut the letters themselves out of red acryilc and set them in the white acrylic. I compensated for kerf on both. The resulting fit is not that great.
I’m wondering if anyone has done this and if you have any tips for getting a good fit and finish?
Also I want to engrave a logo on the background and just color it in with black. Something like using sharpie on engraved tile. Is there a paint like product that you recommend for filling engraves on plastic?
Thanks in advance.
