Battery Tray for a warship

I spend a little time making a cool battery tray for a ship I am working on. I wanted something that had some style and class.

What i did is I cut the square, and I etched the rising run, and lettering. But I wanted the white around the red sun. So before I took off the protective paper from the acrylic I masked off the area and spray painted it. What am amazing effect. I am surprised I have not seen this yet.

Hope it sparks more creative ideas.


This is a very common technique that has been discussed many times. I made a small part this way just earlier today.

There actually have been some very cool acrylic painting projects on the forums, you must have missed them somehow! :slight_smile:

Here are some I did: Party Favors for Gkid


All good. Just trying to expand on what i did. I love to share projects. Nice job with the Tigers. Love it!

Engraving on the back of clear acrylic and then layering in paint to be viewed from the smooth side is particularly rewarding. :slight_smile:
