video Hair Gel + LED = Light
Hair gel is an excellent optical path. Bubbles create surprising tracery. Such source of illumination can be used somehow.

I'd like to do something similar but for a more permanent sealed lamp. Do you know if the hair gel will "go bad" or spoil over time? If so, anyone have any ideas on an alternative concoction that would last for years?
Acually i have a test tube with hair gel in it for 6 months or so, it hasnt gone off, its dried out a little when its spread thinly, but it seems to be fine,
Margerine would work(Stick in a garage for six months, no mould) unfortunately its yellow....
@markeike

Do you have any answers or solutions to your questions? I have been wondering about it as well.
A good question. I too would like to know. And if it does spoil over time, is there a more permanent alternative?

Yeah, How did you hook them up with your music? They all go to different parts, like the blue one went to the bass and the others to other parts. Howd you do that? Anyway Nice Tut! I added it to favorites and I might actually try it out sometime.
