I remember years ago, 1998, my first time travelling to Seattle. I stayed in a motel in a neighborhood which at the time only had warehouses and this very visible and emblematic car wash. 20 years later, we have been in the Seattle area for about 12 years and despite the monumental changes to that part of town, it is still there, pink and all. My wife love this as well so I decided to recreate it in acrylic. The base is the fluo pink available in the Glowforge store. Rest is 1/8 White, Red, Black and various little pieces I had around. My plan is to get a base with some LEDs to light it from below. It is about 8x7 inches. It will fit nicely on one of her bookshelf.
I’ll post pictures when I have the base figured out. Feedback welcomed.
- Recreating the design from pictures in Illustrator
- Figuring out the composition
- Gluing it together - Used the fast setting syrupy acrylic glue from TAP. Worked well!
- looks a bit orange but the pink will come out with LEDs lighting I hope
