Meet the GIMP #99: GIMP goes Acrylic

This is the last episode where I have to look out for the leading zero in the episode number!

Philippe is doing it from scratch again, this time unscratched acrylic glass, cut with a laser and mounted on a brushed steel plate.

Acrylic glass panes (or other kinds of glass panes) are not only transparent. They reflect externally and internally, distort, cast shadows and more. So it’s a lot to think about to get a believable image.

In the companion file there are also two scripts from Philippe for making such glass panes with letters cut into them.
