Color changing stage lights? Answered
I'd like to make a light that will accommodate 2 or three light bulbs/spotlights/floodlights so that one comes on, and ideally fades into the other. It would be used in haunted houses.
I am pretty sure this is a simple build, but I'd appreciate direction or advice. Or a full on Instructable.
A simple setup with a switch (foot pedal?) that simply shuts off one color and turns on another would do.
A button that begins to fade one color out and another in would be better.
One that can be set to fade from one to another automatically at a predetermined interval would be awesome.
Such a setup can be used to create a transformation effect as simple as Jekyll into Hyde or as elaborate as girl into gorilla.
The reason I would prefer it to be automatic is so it can be "plug and play" with only one actor, and work even if it's a different actor each night.
Probably something like this exists commercially, and
A), I don't know what it is called
B) I'm doing it for the Boy's and Girl's club, which has no budget, which means I'm paying for it, which means it needs to be as low cost as possible.
C) If I can build it well and inexpensively, I'd like to play with variations on the theme.
