I wrote on plexiglass the mojito recipe and then I create a small led circuit that I insered in a frame around plexiglass.

For the mojito recipe I designed it on Photoshop and then I reverted the image in order to write it on the good position on the plexiglass.

It is pretty cheap DIY and it is a low comsuption energy system because you can use 2x 1,5v battery or 3x 1,2v battery.

Step 1: Print your model

Print your reverse image and then stick if on plexiglass.
To engrave it I used a dremel with a small peak.

The plexiglass is a 0,5mm thick.

Which type of led did you use and how did you insert them into the strip

Sorry for this late answer but I simply used 5 mm blue led that I insert with a small wood peak.

It is important to have the same led serie which work on the same voltage.

Hope it helps :)

How long did it take you to do all that engraving by hand?

It is true that it takes few hours especially to write letter. It took 2 hours but it is quite tiring and thé dremel is heavy. But the result is pretty cool!!
But if you try a simpliest model! I did an other one in 10minutes
