Lithophane materials

Postby dhellew2 » Tue May 22, 2018 5:35 am

A call from Virginia requesting lithophane material source to make a lithophanes for a fallen Veteran
Hope this will be of use to others too

Ebay has quite a few available. Search Corian pieces or Corian pieces for lithophanes yielded the following:
Candlestone (results in grayscale) [cut rough side]
LG Hi-macs

Use only translucent colors

I've used these colors, tan, beige, Champaign, yellow, pink, green, orange, light blue, brown with a few metal flakes, marble, candlestone, artic white, peach, off white, etc.

Here is an instruction pdf [from an older version of Aspire but most still applies]

A variety of colors
