So I finally got my #4 acrylic weld, and so able to proceed with the trial of this idea for a fun key chain fob–3 layers, center layer with hole and smaller shape fits loosely in there and can “float”.
I cut the outer layers from PG medium clear, and the center I used some opaque black (not PG, but about same thickness as PG). I had cut the white skull out last week of some non PG white. Looked cool all stacked, BUT the white was just a tiny bit thinner than the white, so the skull didn’t move freely. So I used some translucent “smoke” (non PG, but using thick black PG setting worked fine).
And I like this smokier look–and even clear center may be great option as then you only see the central object “floating” in midair–especially good for spookier designs!
But I learned I should leave the outer most side masking on until done welding, as apparently I got some of the weld liquid on my fingers, and thus there’s some residue (hardly visible) on the surface. And that I need more sheets of clear “medium”!
It’s not a perfect job, but not bad for my first try. And I managed to NOT glue the skull, so it does move around.
