They look great! I love the idea of the solid color behind. I did one iteration of the coaster holder with a solid backplate but the wood was too dark and the coasters lost some of the look. Working on a new base with LEDs under it to light them up. Thank you for sharing your great design!!! Love the logo!
Ha! I’m working on a 4 sea scene set as well, but need to order some more acrylic before I can finish…
I messed with the water a lot and ended with the slowly thickening waves looking best. I’ll be interested to see how yours go!
yes the gradient is the way to go. I saw that mentioned someplace around here.
a search for edge lit gradient or some such might get you there.
That looks great!
That is Spectacular!!! Wow!
Newby here! This is beautiful. I want to figure this out.
Have you seen this? @designvh619 graciously provided the file.
Oh, wow! I really love them! The concept! The result!
Yeah, sure. I’ve done it. It’s not perfect, but it definitely helps!
where can I get this design?
The design for the shadow box coasters was posted in the free design category here:
As regards deidrebeth’s example of it, I’d google image search kraken or historical kraken or something like that. Plenty of drawings and paintings of this subject. Separating it into layers is where you really learn your design tools.
How do you get the draft photo option. I’m not seeing it when I bring a file in.
It’s one of the Engrave options.
I understand it’s one of the engrave options. However I’m not seeing the option when I go to my workspace. What do I need to do to be able to get that options.
It depends on your file. If it’s photo-like, with shading and such, the photo options come up under the engrave settings; but if it’s just got flat areas of single-color fills, they don’t.
Exactly. It appears when the selected object is a bitmap with shading.
Otherwise, you will only get the “graphic” options.
