1/4" CANDLESTONE SOLID SURFACE MATERIAL
Size: 8x10 Inches
Thickness: 1/4 Inch
Quantity: 20 Pieces
Take your lithophanes to the next level with a material better suited to the application. Candlestone solid surface material is slightly more opaque than Corian allowing more detail and contrast with similar machining qualities. Here is a comparison of the exact same file machined in both Corain and Candlestone and photographed together:
Candlestone allows you to use a lower model height and you still gives you better image contrast. This can dramatically lower the time it takes to cut a lithophane since the total Z movement is much less. We typically use a .10" model height for nightlights and .12" - .14" model height with larger images.
Here is an example 8"x10" lithophane showing the cut material and then lighted using a LED light panel:
Reviews of Candlestone Solid Surface Material:
Great For Lithos
Posted by Jack Henz on Sep 28th 2016
I am making Christmas presents for my children and their family's from family pictures they have provided. I use a CarveWright CNC machine to cut the lithophanes and your produce carves great. It holds the sharp edges cut with a 1/32" carving bit
this stuff carves up great

I have purchased a total of 30 pieces of the Candlestone from Candlestone Gift Co. The product is amazing for lithophanes. The detail is great and cuts so cleanly and easily.

Have purchased multiple orders through Candlestone Gift Company. Have spoken to John multiple times. He has given me hints to improve my CNC process. Shipments are quick. Will continue to get my material through them.
