Are you using white filament?

Yes, it seems to work the best.

You got any advice on print settings?

Slow and low. :) I would say 25mm/sec @ .10 with 3 walls and 100% fill would give excellent results. Mine I did at .15 and 35mm/sec and they could be better. It all depends on the machine and slicer you are using. I solely use Simplify3D, and 3-4 walls w/ single extrusion fill works well. The main thing is to have your extrusion rate and retraction dialed in. I made some lithophane calibration tests to help me. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3157621

Lithophane Calibration / Test

Ok thanks, Im gonna try and hopefully it works out.

Did you print these standing?

Yes, that is the only way to print them, they are curved.
