Step 1: Empecemos... Let's start

Picture of Empecemos... Let's start
Hay que cortar el acrilico del tamaño que se desee
//Cut the plexiglas the size you want.

Step 2: Print the image you want/Imprimi la imagen que quieras

Picture of Print the image you want/Imprimi la imagen que quieras
Una vez impresa la imagen, la vamos a sujetar con cinta aisladora para poder trabajar mas comodos.

//Once the image is printed you'll want to put some tape over it to work more comfortably.

Important...print the inversed image...that way when you do the job and you turn it the right way it will look the way it should.

Importante!! se debe imprimir la imagen al revez. me refiero a que una vez que ya este tallada la imagen la parte que sera visible para la persona va a ser la que no esta tallada... y ahi si se va a ver bien. como deberia.

Step 3: The box //La caja

Picture of The box //La caja
Una vez que termines de tallar la imagen, hay que colocar el acrilico sobre la caja y asegurarlo con un poco de silicona.

Once you are done with the image on the plexiglass... you will have to put the plexiglass over the box and fix it with a little of glue.
What thickness of plexiglass did you use?

Hi! I used plexiglass 3mm thick. If its any thinner I don't know if you'll break it. Hope it helps! (sorry for my english)

Very nice project. Can it be made from Window Glass ?
And you didn't tell where to use the dremel and Silver painting ..?
shd128 (author)  IndraMJha2 years ago
Thank you! I never tried with glass.. i really don't know if it will reflect the same. I will try it and let you know soon!
The dremel is for engraving the acrylic and the silver painting is to paint the box where the acrylic stands.

Not my taste of subject matter, but definitely one of the more effective side-illuminated pieces we've had.

Your English is fine--much better than many kids in the US who have spent much of their time sending text messages.

Very nicely done.
