Royal Amethyst Cracked Crystal
Depths of Zinfandel Cracked Crystal

Here are images specifically of engraving. All 6 are affected.

Here are images specifically of cutting.

The Pistachio Mint and Blush Punch Turbulence are affected the most.

For the Cracked Crystal, Arctic Ice can be seen but the other three are darker and so the discoloration is not seen.

Potential Solution: Don’t give up on these acrylics. The patterns are quite beautiful and unique. If the edges are straight, the discoloration sands off easily with 320 grit wet sandpaper.
