$7.10 for each layer of acrylic but she’s worth it……
Happy wife, happy life!
May I ask what kind of glue did you use? My superglue leaves a white residue on acrylic. Looks like you didn’t have that problem.
I use 3m 77 spray and it sticks very fast if not immediately. You can use rubbing alcohol to remove any overspray and/or a product called rapid remover from GRIMCO which is an industrial adhesive remover.
So smart! I never would have thought of spray adhesive. Ordering some today! Thanks!
Be careful when using alcohol to clean acrylic. It can cause serious damage, but not always. Current theory says that cast acrylic is safer with alcohol, but I’ve never rigorously tested that.
Good and true advice. I have had the spider web cracking on extruded acrylic (especially clear acrylic for some reason) but this is cast acrylic and I didn’t need to use a lot so I took the chance and it survived. Rapid remover works great as well.
Very nice. The perspective on that last shot is perfect! How the orange layer just shows on the front edge of the woman and top of the dog… showing the edge of their sun-lit side.
This is stunning! Great job. I love acrylic!
Very pretty, and love that it is topped out with teal.
That is beautiful. (it’s got about a $1000 worth of acrylic in it though )
Alcohol has destroyed about every extruded acrylic project that I have cleaned with it. Took me forever to figure out what was causing it.
The issue is the Alcohol and not the Acrylic. Ethanol (two carbons) would work well on everything but to avoid the alcohol tax other types of alcohol are mixed in, and that is where the trouble is. Methanol (one carbon) is particularly horrid on acrylic and I am not sure of others.
I have found the sacrificing some acrylic scraps on what you wish to use keeps you from sacrificing the good stuff
This is beautiful. It must be really heavy too.
That is Terrific Work! Great design choice! Where on the sight did you find the design? I couldnt come up with it.
Pretty heavy, about 3lbs.
Very nice! I wonder, if nothing else but to save costs) if the mandala and water parts of the design could’ve been done on colored paper with the backing and tree/person w/dog/border on acrylic for dimension? It would also make it not so thick. But it looks great and I’m sure your wife loves it!

very nice to know.
