    Hi

    Working daily with acrylic and plastic, so thought some people would like to see that acrylic is not only a transparent material ...

    You have any shots of two way mirror? Also wondering how much light behind mirror is required to make it transparent?

    2 way mirrors have a 50% mirror coating on one side so you need quite a lot of light on both sides to make it work.

    You also need to have very controlled natural lighting in the space to make it work.

    I was thinking of a pc case so during day its mirrored and at night in dark its see through but I am pretty sure it would not be clear enough to easily view parts although the lighting I am getting is pretty bright and there will be lots of it will be using about 12meters of 5050 led strips:D

    During the day it will be mirrored if the internal lights are off.

    Most people just uses normally transparent, and dont have access to this kind of colors, or maybe dont know that you can get glitter acrylic etc ....

    Just wanted to show people how big a variation of acrylic you can get - And there is many more.

    I'd say I use about 50% more opaque coloured Acrylic than transparent or translucent, but that's just me :thumb: You have a very nice selection - I'll shoot you a PM when I get back home to my own PC about some colours... I might be needing some more in the next little while :)
