Create your own custom nightlight, using graphics or lettering!!!

Step 1: Material

-A plain night light from the store
- a test page to get the right graphic or lettering of choice
- a sticker paper that allows you to print the image and stick it to the plastic.

Step 2:

Here you want to cut the print out so it covers the plastic canvas.
-Note i did my image in mirror so that i when i etch the cut-out parts they will be the correct way when finished.

Step 3: Sticker and Covering

sticker on ready to cut the lettering out.

Step 4: Cut Outs

Carefully cut out the lettering so as not to go too far outside the lines or the plastic will be left with scratches that are not wanted.

Step 5: Sandblasting

Here is where the magic happens
-use a sandblaster to etch the parts that you cut out

Step 6: Peel Off the Sticker

Step 7: Clean Up and Light Up

    i like how accurate the sand blasting is over using a dremel! how much did your sandblasting setup cost?
