how do i make a back lid screen? Answered
I am building a kind of monopoly where the streets are back lid with led's and the houses will be custom 3D printed so that the houses light up from the inside. I will call it LEDopoly. It gives a nice feature to the game. but i'm not that far yet. Where i currently am is kind of a problem. The idea in my head was when i install some led's and cover the street with hot glue it will look pretty good.
The only problem is that the hot glue is both dimming the light and is not giving me the result i was hoping for.
In the picture it is not really clear to see, but you can clearly see that there is a light emitting from the side.
My idea was more that the streets would light up perfectly like a back light panel. The start, jail, Chance and Community Chest places etc. need some kind of back light too.
Is there a way to build some kind of back light / edge lid acrylic panel?

Note: This project is still in alpha. The cover is just some ugly papers held together with tape to give an impression. The final version will have either a custom fabric top or a custom paper top but in one piece. Maybe you have some idea's? :)
