Statues provide inspiration, remembrance, and a link to period of history. The only problem with statues is that they can't be enjoyed outside of daylight hours. However, adding red LED's in the eyes of statues makes them look diabolical, and brings the focus back to statues after the sun goes down.

Using playdough and LED's you can make any statue a creepy one. This project mashes up the How to Make playdough and LED throwie Instructables.

Here's what you need:

  • playdough
  • black ink
  • 5mm red LEDs
  • coin cell battery
  • tape

Step 1: Make playdough

Picture of Make playdough

Following Canida's DIY playdough Instructable, I was able to make a neutral colour playdough in under 10 minutes.

To make your own playdough you'll need:
2 cups flour
2 cups warm water
1 cup salt
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon cream of tartar

In a large saucepan I combined all ingredients and mixed thoroughly, then put on stove over medium heat. Stir the mixture continuously until it thickens.

In Canida's words:

When the dough pulls away from the sides and clumps in the center, as shown below, remove the pan from heat and allow the dough to cool enough to handle.
IMPORTANT NOTE: if your playdough is still sticky, you simply need to cook it longer!
Keep stirring and cooking until the dough is dry and feels like playdough.

After the playdough is the right consistency the pan was removed from the heat and the dough was turned out onto a non-stick surface and allowed to cool for about 2 minutes. The dough was then kneeded to produce a uniform and smooth consistency.
