Introduction: LED Acrylic Glass Sign
In this Instructable, I made a LED acrylic sign.
You will need:
For the Sign:
- Acrylic glass
I used a 100 X 80 X 5 mm sheet
- Mini drill with diamond burr bits.
- Stencil knife
- Picture/print out for the stencil
For the base:
Instamorph moldable plastic
2 LED's with a battery holder, batteries and a switch
Step 1: For the Base
I melted the Instamorph and coloured it blue.
I used "no-brand" pigment.
Step 2: For the Base
I used a wooden box as a mould.
Instamorph should not be too hot or else it will stick to the box.
When I removed it from the mould, I reheated the bottom to cut it off.
Step 3: For the Base
To make sure batteries hold in place, I added more Instamorph.
Step 4: For the Base
More Instamorph was added on top to hold acrylic glass.
Step 5: For the Base
I drilled holes for LED's and the switch.
I soldered LED's and a switch to the battery holder.
Then I glued the switch to the case and inserted LED's.
Step 6: For the Base
I covered bottom of LED's with electrical tape and inserted the batteries.
Step 7: The LED Sign
I cut out the stencil and secured it to acrylic with the scotch tape.
Step 8: The LED Sign
Then I used diamond burr bits to colour the stencil.
Now you can put your art on top of the base and watch it shine.
If you get bored, change it.
We have a be nice policy.
