The Curry Family Lithophane


I made another Lithophane for some good friends that came over this weekend (the Curry’s). I took the photo on my phone with them in the backyard and cropped it down and added their name on top. It is printed in white on my UP Plus 2 and turned out pretty great (3.5 hours print time).

Here is the original photo, for comparison. I added their name and the hole at the top to the orginal image that allows for easy mounting of the Lithophane in a window. I think lithophanes always look their best with natural light shining through.

This is what it looks like hanging in a window with a suction cup hanger. I think it turned out really well and am glad I was able to make this for our friends to show off their new family.
