BUTTERFLY ACRYLIC COASTERS

A set of 5 coasters UV printed on laser-cut acrylic circles to be used as coasters. This project served as an exercise in learning how to use a UV printer, allowing me to test out the limitations the machine has with color, overprinting, and its handling of gradients.


I chose the subject of butterflies because of their vibrant coloration, translucency, and delicacy, which I felt was appropriate to be paired with the material of acrylic. Illustrations are original.
