The various shadowbox projects I have seen inspired me to add it to my rabbit hole list. I had thought about several things to try, but then I was inadvertently reintroduced to my large fish in a bowl acrylic stained glass project and boom, here we are. One less chunk of MDF in my world and another to-do item checked off.
You have to love it when a first out trial looks this swell.
As shown it is filler, plant, filler, fish, water. The extra filler between plant and fish adds greatly to the depth look.
Initially I thought to use a blue hue or clear acrylic as a second layer, such that whatever was behind the project would show as with a real fishbowl. Lacking the resource needed, it was decided to paint the water onto a backplane. I may make another if I get a resource to my liking later and try a through the glass look.
This is now 5x6 but was larger in concept (10 wide). I reduced it so I could burn all 5 pieces needed off of one board.
Here is a picture I took to exhibit the depth a tad. The depth is awesome in person, but for some reason the picture lost the depth impact.
I may clean this up enough for a free laser design thread, not really decided yet and they are not going to let my bury myself in the computer today. So…
Happy Father’s day to all my peers.
