I love the effect of the "scrimshaw" look that you get with that. I'm imagining the old oriental carvings or the scenes that sailors on ships would do on ivory teeth/tusks.

Interesting technique indeed!

Hi Dave,

I agree with you, they certainly can look really old world.

Something I want to try is a circular, rotating, panoramic view around a cylinder and since Terry created the Y to A cylindrical mapping screen this project has started to look a whole lot easier to do. I have seen pictures, in old books, where this sort of thing was done on lamp shades but I am thinking more of incorporating it into the base of a lamp. All I need is time  ;D

Think I saw someone over here done a cylindrical lytho with a candle lighting from the inside. The result was fantastic.

EDIT: It was Greolt I think I recall.

Tweakie,

Try doing a Lithophane using a 360 degree panoramic photo and mate the ends together seamlessly. The calculations have to be perfect and the machine setup has to be very precise. I was able to accomplish this on the second lithophane I ever made. The image never ends. ;D
