I have had this design complete for… *checks files* FOUR YEARS and somehow I never uploaded it online in any form.
I’ve played with it for a couple of product ideas, first as printed posters on yellow paper and then I toyed with making it as a shirt design.
I think these coasters are the perfect incarnation however. The black design on the yellow acrylic really evokes a street sign feel.
I make these by etching the design on my laser engraving machine. I leave the paper on the acrylic while the design is etched. After the etching is complete, I use black acrylic paint to fill in the etched areas, then lift the paper masking.
