I have this amazing light box that my husband got me for Christmas last year. I still have not figured out all the cool accessories. Here is my first attempt at using the backlighting pad. This is a flat pad with a low wattage light inside. It's not a bright light, its very filtered. I'm assuming that it's purpose is to give luminosity to pieces. As you can see, my first attempt was not a complete success! I do like that the piece appears to be floating in nothingness. The bad part is that there are too many shadows to deal with on the front. Back to the drawing board!
