I made some waveform art gifts for family and friends - of kids speaking to their deployed fathers. I decided to try it in acrylic instead of wood after seeing an acrylic engrave of a popular song. The one online was single depth and the line was colored (paint?) The other versions I have seen are just prints on paper or canvas. It seemed like a good idea but because my waveforms were layered with different voices I had “depth” without really realizing it because of the different colors I had made the lines.
I wasn’t expecting the depth to show so beautifully or, really, at all. It’s a totally different look than the online generics or the personalized color prints I had seen.
These are my very first acrylic pieces so my gluing technique is…questionable (I can’t seem to get that capillary action I see on YouTube videos) but I love how amazingly better these turned out than expected!!
I love this machine!
