I made a lot of progress on my project this last weekend and am about to make even greater strides tomorrow and this weekend. This last weekend I laser cut all of my pieces out, the map and the pieces to create the 3D buildings. Then I spent time cleaning them all off in preparation for spray painting them. I got a frosted glass spray at McGuckin’s that wold help give my extremely clear acrylic the more opaque look I was going for. This was a great way around buying very expensive already frosted acrylic and it gave the plastic a really cool texture. After spray painting many of the surfaces which took quite a bit of time I started glueing my building pieces together with epoxy glue and waiting for them to dry.
This weekend I will be finishing the project, including having my electrical engineer friend help me out with the lights and finishing the form and aesthetic of my design.
