      Are you going to do a followup instructable about how to etch those images onto the black painted layer? Those images are awesome by the way - what was the method used to create them? I'm looking to do something similar with waveforms.

      I'm assuming that he painted the backside of the acrylic, and then put it under the lasercutter, engraving away the paint to let the light shine trough. (you can also do this with a mirror, might combine very nicely!)

      you can also reverse the led strip to get a brighter border and add a second strip facing inward to light up etching. use white led for border and rgb strip fo etching. this way u get a brighter border independent from colored inside. I have done this type of lighting before on a pc to backlight the motherboard in case.

      Thanks so much, Im planning in doing a tutorial on that.

      But the black layer gets etched by figuring out what is the least amount of power and speed ( differs per laser of course) to go thru the layer of paint. Once that is figured out, is all about tweaking the grey values on the illustrations!

      If we use neopixel LED instead of white LED, then can we get rid of colors on the back side. neo pixels can be programmed to changing colors.

      Yes! you can do that, and also you can animate the pixels being white, so you light up the colors indifferent areas, or different pats of you rillustration.
