Nameplate (black acrylic with acrylic paint)


#1

I made my wife a nameplate for her office:

It’s on 1/8" black acrylic and then painted with multi-surface acrylic paints.

So Organic Chemist?


#3

Professor. Physical chemist rather than organic, but all the fun molecules are organic.


#4

the smelly molecules you mean. :slight_smile: LOL


#5

You could do buckminsterfullerene!


#6

Very Nice! I like the detailed write-up, bookmarked.

That’s either a great idea or a terrible idea. I’m not sure which.

Maybe do this picture, perhaps with double bonds…

That wouldn’t be that bad. Thanks for the idea

Cool nameplate! :grinning:


#9

did you use tape to cover the acrylic or not necessary? :slight_smile:


#10

I used paper-covered acrylic and left the paper on until I was done with the painting part.


#11

This is really great work! I’m curious about your process. Did you paint the acrylic black and then etch your name, removing the paint?


#12

The acrylic was black to start with. I etched the name in, filling the colors in with syringes, and then removed the paper from the acrylic.

More details in my blog which I think I linked.
