Frosted Acrylic Model Platform
Florida Plastics Projects

This mini stage is orbital sander frosted clear acrylic.
It was made out of 3/4" and 1/2" sheets, so clear was used to save money.

The factory frost pattern P95 is twice as expensive as clear, and these two
partial sheets, made out of P95 would have brought my material costs to $1000.
Using the clear, material costs are only about $200.
The sanded by hand clear is not as good a finish, especially close up.
Sandblasted clear is another option, but from a distance, the sanded clear has the same effect. An event company did the led lighting, I just supplied the box.




A 30" cube with 3/4" top is adequate to support the models.
