Cheap Alternative to Epoxy Resin? Answered

I am making a lamp with a wooden frame and the front would be made of a clear epoxy resin with LED in the back. I do not have any epoxy resin and was wondering if anybody knew of some cheaper alternatives to epoxy? I do not need it to be as strong as regular epoxy for this project.

Air is transparent, and it cheap compared to epoxy resin.

Also, do you have to fill the whole volume with transparent plastic? Or would it work to just put a transparent window on the surface of this volume, and have the remaining volume filled with air, or water, or mineral oil, or vacuum, or something else transparent and cheaper than epoxy resin.
