Here are two lithothanes I made.  When you add back-lighting, the changes in depth of material reveal stunning images.  I made them out of polylactic acid on my home-built 3D printer.  The colour I chose gives the images a nice sepia tone when back-lit.  I can't remember from where I grabbed the source images for the lithothanes, as I found them through Google many moons ago.  The background of the second source image, though is titled, LuftFlotte, but the headshot in the foreground was added by someone else.

Let me know what you think.  Lithothanography has become a new hobby.

I like them, very nice!
I understand what you have done and would love to know the process.
If you could bring yourself to show us a "How Too", I think there would be a very willing audience.

Did you just go PSSSSSSST at me or have I just sprung a leak?

they make sconce lights that use a curved glass to diffuse the light, those would work wonderfully with one of those sconces if you used a bulb that wont melt it.

I wear goggles so you can't see when I'm staring at you.

For those interested, I just posted a lithothanography guide in the How-to section.

A fine example of something that might not have existed without home fabricating machines. I don't think that you could do this through acid etching.
