Still doing nightlights


The “Texas Star” nightlights that I previously showed here were very popular with my family. So much so, I’ve been busy making new designs and have even made some money selling them. A website is in my future, but for now, here’s my latest design.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week. Happy creating.

So pretty! I’m trying to figure out the layers/materials ~ is it engraved acrylic in front of wood?

It’s a piece of wood veneer sandwiched between two pieces of engraved clear acrylic.

It’s edge lit, but the effect I’m trying to accomplish is that the engraving on the front piece “pops” because of the wood behind it, while the engraving on the back acts as a backlight, similar to a shadow box.

This is a prototype. If I choose to sell these, the engravings will have to be simplified. It took a long time to engrave, despite being entirely done using scores.

That is just beautiful. I love the combination of wood and acrylic, I don’t think I’ve seen that on a nightlight before!
