There are two challenges with creating framed custom lithophanes after the carving process is complete.
The challenge with lighting is usually brightness and evenly distributed lighting. Unfortunately, efforts to use Christmas lights, incandescent bulbs, or LED light strips result in uneven or dim illumination. Our light panels provide a bright and even white light.
The challenge with framing is usually related to the depth of the frame. Traditional frames don’t typically have enough depth to hold all of the “equipment” associated with those types of lighting.
Framing your lithophane
Typically, a lithophane is approximately 1/4 inch thick. Combined with our light panel, the total thickness is just 1/2 inch. If you want a ready made frame, then we recommend the Blick Essentials Wood Gallery Frames combined with a framing matte.
