You can do this with some Acrylic and an acrylic tool yourself?

A basic engraving I could yea, I was thinking more laser engraved with depth, like that fella on the internets doin drywall art. And more curious if anyone has seen it/done it. But thank you :)

Ahh, I was going ask a local company do engrave it for me...but ill stick to basic line for mine

Try getting a sheet of clear acrylic and cutting it to size. Then, get a picture of whatever you want and attach it in some way flat against the surface of the acrylic that you want facing over it. Paint over it in one color then paint the back side in one color, remove the paper with the picture on it. It should give the illusion of depth because you have to look through the clear acrylic to get to the second layer of paint on the other side (which should be a different color, so the design stands out). However, if you want it actually engraved so you can feel it...your best bet is maybe finding a local Makerspace or shop with a laser cutter that would be willing to do it for you?

Yeah, local engraver is looking into a grayscale laser cut method like what you see for "2 and a half D" on trophies/medals. downside is only max cut of 5 tenths of a cm... :/ ah well... may just have my artsy wife come up with something.

Half of a centimeter might be pretty good depending on the thickness of your acyrlic/backplate. It usually comes in 1/2", 1/4", 1/8" and in some cases 1/16" and 1 inch.

you could look at v1 tech, i'm sure they have something custom

ziggurat666 submitter 7 Builds 2 points 10 months ago

They do, but I have a fantastic idea now, the wife and I will work together and use LED reactive Acryllic treatment and Krylex
