Step 7: Post-processing and assembly

When assembling your display begin by gluing the coloured TroGlass Satin components to the 5mm clear acrylic, ensuring that the pieces are positioned exactly above each other.

The next step is to position the engraved 8 mm acrylic. To protect your laser engraved design position the engraved side onto the coloured acrylic.


Inspiration

You can create several different designs for your jewellery stands using different materials to help them stand out. When using thin acrylic cut a base out for the stand to ensure stability.
