Led diffusing for pc case.? Need advise.

Hi, I plan to make a custom logo for my graphics card. Though, I am unsure of what acrylic to get to diffuse the lights nicely. The plan is to spraypaint the acrylic black but use masking tape to form out GEFORCE RTX. Then put rgb leds behind that to illuminate that portion that says GEFORCE RTX. I found these three acrylics: https://www.inventables.com/technologies/40-light-transmission-white-acrylic-sheet or https://www.canalplastic.com/products/2447-white-translucent-acrylic-sheet?variant=32920753742 or https://www.canalplastic.com/products/0d010-df-frosted-satin-ice-acrylic-sheet?variant=32918342670

Are any of these good for what i am attempting to do? Note I do not want to be able to see the leds at all and the leds will be pressed against the acrylic. I want a really nice diffused, bright look. Where you can easily see it.

Any advice would be nice! Thanks, Ian

One time I did something like that by printing on an overhead sheet (clear plastic) but then if it worked you would have to make the letters white or put a diffusing panel behind it. Printing overhead sheets is of course super easy on an inkjet but not sure the black would be enough to not show through. Or it could make a good template for you.

The overhead sheets have something on them to catch the ink better. They are amazing on an overhead if anyone uses them anymore lol.
