Laser cutting – Building the canvas

Today I went to the 3D workshop to use the laser cutter, this time my approach was different because instead of trying to build a 3D structure for my pieces, I decided to cut different pieces from a sheet of Acrylic plastic in order to use them as the base for my 3D painting/sculptures.

At the moment I am planning to use this material to achieve two goals; firstly to stop using the MDF sheets (that come as part of pre-made frames) as support for my pieces, and secondly, to be able to make frameless pieces but still be able to hang them form the wall.
