If you do a deep etch on translucent/frosted or opaque acrylic, is the etched part more translucent than the full thickness part? Or does the etching darken the material, even though those spots are thinner? Does that make any sense at all?
I’m terrible at explaining myself. Like, you know how when you carve a pumpkin, the deeper you carve without cutting through, the more glowy that part is when it’s backlit. I was wondering if the same thing is true of not-transparent acrylic. I tried googling, but that’s a beast to try and Google. For my sleep-addled brain, at least.
So any lasery-experienced people know?
