What is a Lithophane?

lithophane (French: lithophanie) is an etched or molded artwork in very thin translucent porcelain that can only be seen clearly when back lit with a light source. It is a design or scene in intaglio that appears “en grisaille” (in gray) tones.

A 3D Printed lithophane follows along the same concepts, usually in a white or bone color filament to show the most detail.

Example

A while ago we got to see Thomas the Tank in person and we captured this photo.

Which we turned into this lithophane!

3d printed Thomas the Tank LIthophane Nightlight

Which appears like this when not lit from behind.

Pretty neat huh?

The process takes a little bit of work – but we’ll do that for you. We will make sure your image is processed so that it is framed well, doesn’t have any “empty” spots (where you will see holes in the lithophane) and we’ll print it to fit a great LED Light base which is included! It takes about 6-20 hours to print these since we take it “slow and easy” to make sure you get great image quality and details that shine through when lit from behind.

We can print whatever you desire!
