Acrylic Custom Materials
Acrylic casting designs elevated with unique effects
Experimenting with acrylic effects
The various effects we all to our designs here at Midton add allure and depth to the material through proprietary processes (many of which we have developed and pioneered ourselves).
In-house experimentation and development is constantly creating new and innovative ways of elevating the experience we create when designing unique acrylic products and experiences. If you’re interested in this, you’ll also be interested in our acrylic shape and form page.
Playing with light effects with acrylics
There is so much that we can do with your acrylic designs. At its simplest, we can match the colour to your brand. We can also add gradients to create a light effect, frosting a surface to diffuse light or texturing a facet to add a tactile element.
Material effects can help to add an extra layer of depth, meaning or function to your project.

How do we add these effects to acrylic?
There is no easy answer to this as there are many different processes and minds at work at each stage of the process. We combine hands-on sculptural techniques and painstaking finishing processes with complex multi-stage casting and intricate machining.
Many of the effects we create are a collaborative coming together of multiple processes, working in unison to pull off the desired outcome. Take a look at our larger acrylic embedments section and our case studies.
Possibilities of our acrylics…
We’re often asked about the possibilities and limits of our acrylic effects are, and the answer is that there aren’t many… We don’t want to hamper our clients’ creativity; even if we don’t think we can do it, we will find a new method or process! If you’d like to know more about our processes and what we can make for you, please get in touch.

Great partnerships - great projects
We have enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Midton, and are extremely and consistently thrilled with the products created for us. Not only do we trust in the team to deliver quality every time, we also very much appreciate the excellent service provided; we’re well looked after and feel valued as a client, but equally the same can be said for our orders – always carefully and caringly packaged, and delivered on time.
Midton designed us a beautiful financial tombstone for us using a combination of different materials – wood, acrylic and metal. A very reliable and professional service with a quick turnaround time and reasonable pricing. Would definitely recommend them to any business looking for something genuinely unique that they can be proud to display in the office or send to clients.
Midton met our needs perfectly and were an easy company to deal with. We had an idea for a corporate memento which didn’t quite work however Midton made some suggested changes and turned this into a very successful product. They understood our requirements, suggested alternative ways to meet these requirements and were flexible in what they offered. We would certainly use their services again.
