I really should think these things through as my method of make something, then tinker with it, re-design and then make it again etc. gets expensive I didn’t realize how thin and tiny some of these pieces were going to be and now I don’t know how to stick it all together. I can’t see how gluing all those itty pieces will work. Any ideas/suggestions on how to make this work? I can re-cut pieces or redesign things if need be.
I’ve been thinking about engraving the blue back plate with maybe 3 passes for a deep recess to stick the pieces in. I don’t know if I could get the plate I already have cut lined up correctly, but I could make a new one. I also have the blue in a hefty 1/4" acrylic which might work well.
Maybe paint some of the smaller white pieces instead of using the acrylic pieces? It wouldn’t have the same depth, but might be a lot easier. I could engrave the white pieces and backfill with paint as well.
