backlit picture frame
so, i got these really cool batiks (paintings on silk), and i would like to make frames for them with light inside, cuz they look really cool when backlit. AND to avoid any cords hanging out of my beautiful pictures i'd like to make them battery operated with an on/off switch.
so, has anybody done it before? or got any ideas how to approach this, and what materials to buy. needless to say, cheaper is better :)
the pictures are 11x11 inches and they don't have to be bright, just slightly glowing, so i was thinking to use some LED's, or El-wire, and vellum or matt plexyglass to diffuse the light.
any help apprecialted.
