Hello! I was wondering if I could get some opinions on the chandelier I just finished cutting from perspex (mirrored plastic) with a scroll saw. I apologize for the poor quality photo! I was very excited and wanted to capture it quickly. The way it resized, the edges look kind of odd, but the whole piece is very smooth in real life. What do you think?



Oh! It's almost 2 feet wide.

That is AWESOME!  I'm very inspired by this - not realizing that mirrored plastic was an option for crafting, my mind is going crazy.  You're very good with a scroll saw!

Wow! That's really neat. It almost looks like it's floating. The fact that it's flat really tricked my brain, haha.

Wow! It's amazing! I liked the others you posted as well. The picture is odd (in a good way!). It looks like the chandelier is floating in the air. Perhaps it's just my preconceived notion that chandeliers are something that you hang.

Regardless, it's beautiful!

I know of one type of place you could get mirrored plastic from, a sign shop, they may have some scraps around or they could maybe order it.  May be expensive, not sure.  There may be other sources for mirror plastic, i'm just not aware of them either.

I like it. It's kinda surreal. I'm not much of a mirror person, but that I'd like to have on my wall.

How did you get the bits that you haven't cut out to stay there? To me it looks like you have just cut the foil off the plastic with a craft knife and left the foil there, cause I can't understand how the pieces that have been completely cut out remain.

But it looks awesome none the less and is something to try in the future! Its beautiful.

Sorry, I'm not sure I understand the question! Smiley The cut out parts are open space, and when I attached it to the wall you can see my brown wall behind it. I didn't cut the foil off in any places, it is entirely cut out with a combination of my scroll saw and tiny dental tools. The plastic is thick and cannot be cut with a craft knife. Let me know if you still have questions!

Also, to everyone that asked about the perspex, you can buy it in sheets on ebay. Smiley
