Yeah. I guess there are times it might look good but I haven’t run across any. I did a project that I thought it would look like the etch was floating but it just has that awkward distracting reflected look. Maybe if it were really thick or I could sandwich a clear layer on top but I haven’t tried inch or two thick acrylic.
Have you ever put the mirror coating on the back yourself? I was wondering how that works out. I’ve some projects where if the engrave was mirrored but the rest was colored might be cool.
