Here's a picture of a clock I made with clear mirror and a purple mirror interior. Click on it to see a larger view
It's hard to take a picture of mirror I had to take it at an angle, but I think you can see that by using the acrylic sheets you can create projects that are different
You really can use the acrylic on almost every pattern that calls for wood.
Taking pictures of acrylic is extremely difficult, mirrors are the worst. The pictures below are the best we could come up with after many hours of working with many different ways to take pictures, scans, etc... None of these pictures are exactly what the real colors look like, but it is a close resemblance.
The color samples shown below will also depend on your monitor's color settings, Everyone has them set up differently
This style of Acrylic lets some light pass through but you could not see the light bulbs if they are used. Very similar to lighted Restaurant Signs.
1/8" Thick Solid Color Acrylic
1/16" Thick Solid Color Acrylic
This style of Acrylic is like tinted window glass you can see objects through it. The color is all the way through the plastic, not just a coating on the top and bottom
This works great for sun catchers, etc... The Clear transparent is just like plastic non-tinted glass
The color samples below maybe slightly different than the actual colors of the acrylic sheets as taking a picture of these is very difficult
1/8" Thick Transparent Acrylic
This type of acrylic is a transparent acrylic where the edges will glow a fluorescent color. This product is very unique, It collects the light in the room and makes the edges of the acrylic glow a bright fluorescent color. We stock it in 3 different 1/8" colors.
You may have seen clipboards made out of this product in the office supply stores
It is extremely difficult to take picture of acrylics and get them to turn out good. The real pieces of acrylic are much brighter and have more color than the picture shows
This type of Acrylic is colored mirrors. It has a silver coated mirror backing on it, just like regular glass mirrors. If you are using the cutting tips above DO NOT allow the tape to wrap around to the silver backing as the tape may pull the silver backing off, destroying the mirror. We stock the Colored Mirrors in 1/8" thick and the Clear Mirrors in 1/8" & 1/4". The clear mirrors are just like regular glass non tinted mirrors. The color samples below maybe slightly different than the actual colors of the acrylic sheets as taking a picture of these is very difficult. Colors will vary from computer to computer as each person has different settings on their monitors.
