Plexi Clock sm.jpg (118892 bytes)

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.



Acrylic Sheets

  • We stock acrylic sheets in many styles and colors

  • All pieces measure 12" x 24" (+/- 1/8") actual size is about 11 7/8" x 23 7/8" to allow for blade width when cutting the full sheets

  • We Only Stock & Ship This Size Sheet and Only In The Styles Listed Below

  • Many people call it Plexiglas™ but that is only one brand name of many different acrylic sheet manufactures

  • We have found that using the OLSON®  Double Skip Tooth Blades give us the best results when cutting plastics. We mainly use the # 3D & # 5D

  • A great tip for cutting acrylic sheets: All the acrylic sheets come with a protective paper or film on them, leave that paper or film on then place a layer of Duct Tape on the area to be cut (on top of the paper). Then glue your pattern on top of the Duct Tape and cut as usual. This will stop the melting you may have heard of. Using this process and a Double Skip Tooth blade we are able to cut at full speed with no melting. I would advise not to stack cut acrylic sheets more than two layers high. Any pattern designed for wood can be used with acrylic. We have used acrylic sheets to make pictures, ornaments, clocks, backgrounds etc...

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

 



 

Solid Colors

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.

Transparent Colors

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

Fluorescent Colors

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

Colored Mirrors

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.
