Step 1: Materials
- 2 LEDs
- copper tape
- 1 4V battery
- solder iron
Step 2: Place Copper Tape
First, tape the crocodile's mouth as the drawing shows allowing a nice space for the LEDs to make contact. Repeat this process with both sides; they should be exactly the same.
Lastly, place the copper tape as the photo shows for the lions head. Go all the way inside with the copper tape through the gap for the battery. This will ensure contact and hence a good connection through the pressure between the battery and the hole with copper tape.
Look at the photo of the assembles crocodile pieces and the lion's head. The copper tape should be perfectly aligned.
Place the battery through the lion head shape.
Step 3: Place LEDs
Solder the LEDs legs to the copper tape as shown on the photo. Make sure to test which parts of the legs should conduct negative and positive current. repeat this step for both of the crocodile's shapes and make sure they are exactly the same.
Test the connections and sides before soldering anything.
Step 4: Paint and Assemble!
Paint each piece of cardboard separately and make sure they are dry before assembling together again.
I painted with acrylic and some glow in the dark paint. ENjoy!!!
