    Hello All,
    Here is the litho I carved just yesterday.
    Photo I used and two photo's of same litho, just a bit different in the back lighting.
    Happy Carving

    Nice on your litho's carving... I think I had asked you before on you boxes to fit your lithophanes how wide are the boxes ? And what wattage do you use for the light ? I had made only one so far and made it out of 1"X4". Trial and error gets expensive !

    aokweld101,

    I make the box 2" in depth and use LED rope lights the new ones that I am trying run on two AA batteries.

    I will keep you posted on how that works.

    Your lithos turned out great. Did you do anything special to the photograph? What type of rope lighting, are you able to cut it to size? I have been having a really difficult time finding lighting that can be adjusted. I have tried pucks but they are not as good. Thanks.

    Nice job Robert. But, then again, it's what we all have come to expect from you.

    Great litho, Robert. You really do a very nice job with them. I purchased some rope LED lights off of ebay as well as the power adaptors and cut the rope lights to length desired. They seem to work pretty well...

    If it is a job to go to work, learn something new. Life is to short to waste it on something you don't love.
