I've been wanting to use clear casting resin ever since I saw it used in this
brilliant Instructable by Koogar. Before I took on something as big as Koogar’s project, I wanted to start small so I came-up with “LED Resin Cubes”.
The idea behind the LED Resin Cube was inspired by a mercury switch that I found at my local electronic store. I love the simplicity and look of this switch and wanted to incorporate it a project so you could see the switch in motion. As the switch is made of glass and fragile, it’s pretty important to encase it in something strong – hence the clear resin.
Check out the video below to see the LED Resin Cube in action.
This is a really easy project to do and the end result looks pretty cool.
