While I’m enjoying the materials, I have to do something with all this specialty acrylic I have.
So… here’s the pendant I did a couple of weeks ago, but this time using the “Slate Gray Mirror Acrylic” I got from Inventables.
I used the Medium Black Acrylic settings in GFUI and it overall seemed fine. There are a couple of spots where there’s some heat damage to the acrylic, but I can live with that.
I like that there are three different looks to the one piece, depending upon the light – engraved areas becomes translucent when backlit, surface looks dark metal metallic when nothing bright to reflect, and super-reflective with light stuff. Would be good in a nightclub.
Note that I engraved and cut from the back (the side that looks matte gray, not shiny, if you have some and have wondered).
