This is the second light box I’ve made using my GF! The original picture design was from Freepik.com. I took the AI file and used it to make layers. I had to add borders and change a few things on the original design. I ended up with 10 layers in total.
The dragon was glued onto a transparency, as was the layer with the birds flying. The rest of the layers were cut from 65 lb. white cardstock. Layers have strips of foam core board in between to separate them.
In order to reduce smoke staining and charring, I engrave cut all of the lines that aren’t straight. I used “stroke to path” in Inkscape and then engrave cut them.
The vertical and horizontal lines I cut.
I also cut the frame on the GF using 1/8" baltic birch ply.
