In this instructable I will show you how to make light painting spirographs, which are one of my favorite techniques in light painting.
First of all I do not take credit for this idea, I know it has been done long before my time, but I feel the necessity to spread it further. You will also need to know how light painting works, which you can find out through one of my other instructables, or a photography website I'm particularly fond of.
For this project you will need to find these items:
- Bike wheel (1 to 2 foot diameter) - Bike peg* - LED chain lights of proper length - Hot glue (also having epoxy helps) - Battery holder and switch (if lights don't have them) - Ratchet and correct sized socket for peg
* The bike peg is not necessary as there are many cheaper replacements. It is going to be used to make a handle, and since I had four laying around and they're made for bike wheels this was my best option.
