The crystalline base is totally powered through the included rechargeable power supply (AAA batteries). You want to carve a crystal photo of your favorite photo, but you got a distressing background on your newly-sculpted photo? You’d like to isolate your new photo from the distracting background for good, so that only the people in the photo will be revealed to their greatest advantage. You can now achieve this with photo collage. Here are some instructions:
– Purchase a nice-looking crystal photo block. It is essential to make sure that the size of the crystal photo block fits the exact portrait format used for your favorite photos. If you want your photo taken on the top half of the normal optical glass window, you should purchase a portrait format photo block that is approximately twice as large as your desired portrait size. You can also select portrait format blocks that are three times as wide as your desired photo size in order to make your background less distracting.
– Make a grid on the top of the crystal photo block and write the names of the people whose portraits you are going to take. Do not forget to include the person’s name and birthdate. – Take your chosen photo crystal, flip it over, and engrave it (you may use a pencil for decorative effect) onto the top-half of the crystal photo. – Be sure that you are holding the photo crystal with your right hand and your thumb lined up with the letters of the word you want to write. – Hold your engraving pen directly on the letter you are going to inscribe – Place the crystal back in its holder and wait a few seconds for the light to refract through the wood (in case of shade) behind the letters.
If you want to create a 3d photo crystal, there are two methods you can use. The first method is called the crystal viewing process in which you place the crystal photo into a special viewing chamber and look through its crystal panel while it is being cut. The second method is called the crystal viewing with the help of a laser. In this method, the crystal photo is placed into a chamber where a laser beam is aimed at it. It takes around twenty seconds for the laser beam to reflect back to the crystal photo.
If you are planning to use the latter method, then you have to remember that it takes more time because you need to prepare the crystal photo block in advance and aim the laser photo block at it. However, you need not worry about these things because using the best engraving techniques will help you get a better result. There are different engraver techniques available today, so you can choose the one that is most appropriate for your personal situation.
In order to have the best crystal photo gift, it is important to purchase the right photo block. You have to make sure that you use photo engraving techniques that are suitable for your type of photo. For example, if you are looking for a birthday present, then you can go for a silver photo block with the names of all the recipients engraved on it. This type of gift will also look more elegant.
