This was actually the simplest of the series in terms of construction, as the art consists of a single layer. Since I wanted to keep the disconnected spots of the cheetah black, I engraved the transparent elements onto a sheet of Black and Clear Reverse Laserable Acrylic.
One could also achieve a similar effect with normal clear acrylic, by engraving and painting the black portions before removing the mask. But using the 2-color acrylic seemed easier and more reliable, and I wanted to try it out.
Like the previous butterfly, this one also uses a $16 WiFi LED controller, so he can control the lighting via a smart phone app or Alexa/Echo, including the ability to flow or jump through various colors and pulse to music.
