Another etched photograph idea. My customer didn't want any of the templates listed on my website. She wanted something simple yet masculine. There was a quote that was very important to her that needed to be added. I didn't concentrate to much on the graphic elements but gave her a clean, straight edge double frame to highlight the picture. The picture was actually taken much further back, but I cropped it and blew it up to emphasize the most important part... the hug and let the words stand strong and bold below expressing how she felt.
Etched Photograph with Light Base
The Fellowship Baptist Church is celebrating their 50th Anniversary. Rev. Archibald wanted to present 3 of his deacons with an award thanking them for their years of service. He chose a light up base illuminating an etched picture. Each one had the same top half of the 3 ministers overlaying a faded picture of their church while the bottom half was personalized with their picture and a saying.
Etched Photograph on Light Up Base
Having your photograph etched on glass is a process of converting your photo to a halftone. This means, up close, you will see a bunch of dots but viewed from a distance those dots begin to take the shape of your photo. Crystal Swan Etchings, of Staten Island, NY will provide a design template of your choice and accompany it with an LED light up base that will illuminate your glass etched photograph. Makes a unique and personal gift for Valentine's Day, Anniversaries, Mother's Day or Birthdays.
