A word of warning, if using one of those white incandescent light bulbs, the white powder inside contains mercury which is a very dangerous substance.

the white powder in an incandescent bulb is a kaolin powder. clay. it's not toxic. there's no mercury in an incandescent bulb.

Please cite your source claiming that incandescent bulbs contain mercury.. Fluorescent lamps contain mercury and the white powder in them is phosphorus.   I don't believe incandescent lamps contain anything particularlly hazardous.  (all in the interest of correct information)  :-)

Using more bulbs with something like the Cylon circuit could make this even more fantastic. Something else I've seen used to fill glass objects, and keep bubbles throughout it, is clear silicon caulk that is fairly cheep and comes in the big caulk tubes, might be a lot cheaper than garage door lube. Again Great Instructable.

Great Job, AC Moore (Arts & Craft store ) sells light bulbs (clear) that the bottom screws off and on $1.00.

I'm not seeing where you are sealing up the bulb. What's keeping the gel from oozing out? Is it when you hot glue the bulb to the LED?

don't use hand sanitizer , its flammable so yeah not a good mix with electrity

I'm building this now for my son to have a night light...what kind of lubricant did you use... I was thinking of using clear hair gel, but was interested to know what lubricant you used that was clear... Thanks.
