3D Paintings Mimic Holograms

Painting with volume in mind, literally adds a whole new dimension to artwork. Many years ago I thought of doing this with glass film plates but never had the opportunity to try it out. Perhaps I should investigate it once again…

“...they are called “‘spatial paintings,’ which often feature distorted figures, are drawn individually using colored pencil on tinted glass. Only when these pieces are combined on their floor racks do the images create the whole hologram like effect.”

With the Arbor Scientific Holography Laser, anyone can afford to make holograms! Holography has never been this easy. Even middle school students can make beautiful holograms with this simple 8-step process. Our >5mW Holography Laser is modified expressly for the purpose of creating holograms. If you've never tried holography before, we developed this beginner's kit just for you. With our new Simple Holography Kit, you get all the equipment you need to make holograms, including the laser and an ideally sized pewter object, for only $185! All you need to do is determine the amount of film and developing chemicals you need for your class. We've taken care of the rest for you. Kit includes Holography Laser, 12" x 24" holography table, holography safelight, film holder, pewter object, 5" x 7" developing trays, and detailed instructions.

  1. Sure, could use the same software as is used to prep files for a laser cutter. Slice the model up and print it out.

  2. I wonder if you could use a program with 3D modeling software to print on acetate.
