My first edge-lit acrylic sign attempt…
It came out exactly as I wanted.
A couple of things I learned…
- I specifically made the heart 3x the size of the slot in the base. I wanted to see if the light would translate out 100% on either side. It really does. Maybe next time I’ll go bigger!
- I made the heart shape of the acrylic meet the bottom of the acrylic in a place I thought would be attractive. And it is. But I probably should have altered that so that I maximize the light coming out through the acrylic. (Not sure that made sense as I wrote it. Hope it does!)
- I can make my wife well-up when my first attempt at edge-lit signs is about our marriage.
Thanks to @Xabbess for showing the LED base in use yesterday which helped me finally decide which base to buy. I bought a 12 pack.
Anyway… Thanks for taking a look!
