Step by step
Step 1: Preparation
First you need to choose which colours you would like to use for the trophy. We recommend using colours that provide a good contrast between the individual layers for a greater effect.
When ordering the TroGlass Satins 3mm Lemon Green Translucent sheet, ensure it has double-sided adhesive film on one side.
Step 2: Laser Process
Proceed to cutting the 15 elements from the acrylic sheets. For perfect results, we recommend using an acrylic cutting grid table. Ensure that you cover the rest of the table and remove the protective film from the top side.
