    Default LIthophane lighting effects

    Has anyone used "lighting gels" like they use in the theatrical industry also known as light filters ( change white light to what ever color your looking for). I have white cast acrylic and the company i purchase from doesn't stock anything else. I was wondering if i used a tan or yellow acrylic sheet of lighting gel to change the white led lights to a tan-ish or sepia effect.



    Thanks for any help

    I've use a an Air brush with simi-transparent acrylic colors to get effects that you mentioned,
    on White Cast Acrylic and Corian lithos with very good results.

    I would love to see some pics of those painted lithos if you have them?

    Here's a Thread form 2009 "Colored Lithos" that shows a couple techniques
    that have been used by folks on the forum in the past.
