I tried something a little different this time. I sublimated a print onto coated mdf. The text was engraved at 1000/45/225. While it was still masked I hit it with white spray paint. Still some settings I need to tweak.
That looks awesome!
I’ve been playing a lot with sublimation over the past few months, but mostly experimenting. It’s fun seeing others combining them, too.
That is an interesting look too, but I think I like it better when you engraved on one side of the acrylic and sublimation on the other. The shadows from the depth can be seen in the other method. I am sure this photo does not do it justice, but I like the acrylic better.
Anything you would like to see? Give me an idea or two you’d like me to tackle and I’ll take a crack at it.
Personally, I think that last acrylic one was amazing!
I cannot image anything you could do that would look better than this!
Have you played around with lit acrylic? It would be very interesting to see the sublimation with a lit acrylic. Do you think it would work?
I would say it’s a pretty cool image and project! I have been looking into Dye Sublimation printers. Still doing the research and not ready to pull the trigger.
I’ve been trying to come up with something layered with a different colored light for each layer, but so far nothing has given me that aha moment.
That actually sounds amazing too!
Something with layered acrylic sublimation would be pretty astounding even without the light.
That is so amazing. I just received my Glowforge Plus and am printing my second project…I see I have a lot to learn but painting with paper still on is a great tip! Thank you.
