My System Specs


I haven't done an applique (sp?) with it, but I do know that most solvent based aerosol products will give you a frosted look on plexiglass / acrylic.

It would be fairly easy to test what they do if you have a couple of junk pieces of plexi/acrylic kicking around.

Once you decide on a spray solvent, you can mask off the whole window (double check to make sure that the masking tape you use will not be affected by the solvent), apply the image to the mask, and then cut out the parts you want frosted.

Spray the solvent on, and voila!!!!!

I don't have a case window, but I've been dying to try this method......

If you do try it out, please be sure to post some pics to let us know how it turns out.
