Steffen from Denmark submitted these photos of his etched mirror welcome sign. We have featured others that used LEDs to light up the etching on mirrors such as this project by Dana and this one by Ernie.
The cool thing about Steffen’s project is he used a color changing LED setup. I noticed from the photos he sent me that there was a remote next to the project which looks like the exact same setup I purchased from Amazon shown here. The remote allows you to select the color to display from a distance and even make it flash. The colors can flash in a sequence of all the colors too! He shared the photos of what it looks like in other colors below.
He shared the below details:
I cut my stencil out in oramask 831, remember to mirror it before cutting, and then I place it in the back of the mirror, and sandblasting it with aluminum oxide grit 180, after that i place led light in the back of the mirror.
As you may know, etching the reverse side of mirrors with the sandblasting process, allows the paint and silver lining to be removed from the stencil. Etching mirrors are a great way to reveal a lighted sign because the light is only shown through the removed silver areas.
Please leave Steffen some comments below for sharing with us all! Also, feel free to ask either of us any questions. Thanks!
