@hansepe and I collaborated together on a space themed shadowbox about the same time as the Apollo 11 mission 50th Anniversary. We couldn’t resist. There is more in the works, but here is the first freebie. It’s made with 6 layers of proofgrade materials, both wood and acrylic. (Sorry, photo doesn’t do it justice. The black and clear acrylic layers make it very shiny, especially illuminated).
use no fog glue for the acrylic layers
careful weeding the flag - it could easily break
7" width version - each frame separately laid out with material suggestions
Make sure you set the NASA logo part that is not engrave, to score. Print respective layers on each sheet meanwhile deleting the other pieces. Then use the back button the restore to show all and repeat with another layer and another piece of proofgrade.
8" width version is a file with the 6 layers on top of one another with fill colors. For those of you who want to resize the entire shadowbox. Open all layers; highlight the lot; lock H and W, and resize.
It was refreshing collaborating with @hansepe, even though we live several states apart. What I missed in being retired - just working on my own projects, without being able to banter ideas back and forth and editing as you go along - was restored in this project. I guess sometimes I do better interacting with others and it has been very enjoyable.
Dang, I saw the coasters first, but this is an awesome pair of projects!
I watched the first moon landing, and my dad convinced me that if I went outside and looked real hard at the moon, I could see them moving around… he thought it was funny that I spent hours trying to see them.
I was 4, so he found it amusing to tease me, especially since he thought I was a strange kid for being so excited about men on the moon…
May I add one of these to the gift for the NASA museum here? I’ll have to gather materials and work on it as I can, but I’m excited about it.
