What You Will Need

  • Han Solo in Carbonite Silicone Mold
  • Cement/Concrete Mix
  • Hot Glue (about 3 sticks)
  • Silver Spray Paint
  • Black Acrylic Paint
  • Red Super Bright LEDs (I used 27 red 5mm LEDs)
  • Resistors (60 ohm for a 12V Supply, 6 LEDs in series)
  • AC/DC Power Supply (I used a 12V supply, you can use whatever you like with the appropriate resistor)

An alternative option for the LEDs if you don't feel like doing any soldering would be to get a strip with a power supply (Amazon search example: red led strip with power supply)

Step 1: Another Sticky Situation for Solo

The first step is to fill Han with hot glue. The translucent glue makes a great diffusor for the LEDs.

You will need to do it in a few steps, waiting for the glue to set in between each, in order to build up a nice thick body, without the glue running all over the place.

If the glue ends up where you don't want it, you can easily pull it out, or if it hasn't set yet, use a wet finger to remold it.

<p>LOL nice work, deffo going to have to make one of these </p>
I'd love to see it if you do!
<p>That's fantastic. I love that. Nice job. </p>
<p>Nice. I think that this is the first time that I have seen a frozen Han Solo that glows.</p>
Thanks! I had a quick google myself and couldn't find a glowing one either, so I am inordinately pleased with myself :-P
