just another Project of me. Cold lights or " The Lavendel Cold light Trilogy " . Here I have created three different cold lights with different Colours. Anyone can recreate these lights with a vew Things.
Some various, Brass Lamp parts
3 pc 300 Watt light bulbs ( larger, smaler, just like you want. Glass bottles or similar )
Fluorescent Powder Like this one
3 pc Test Tubes and Cork Like this one
6 pc UV-Leds and Resistor for 9V
3 pc 9V Battery
3 pc On / Off Switches
Different Acid and Sulfur Liver for Coloring
Step 1: The Stand or Housing
First we have to empty the bulbs. It give a lot of instructions here how to empty a lightbulb.
Be careful because the glass can break very quickly. In the second picture you can already see the shelter with the empty bulbs. Now even dye the thread . ( Pic 3 )
Glue an Uv Led in the Stand, directli under the Glas from the Bulb. Also we solder parallel a second Led to the Textilcabel. Make it long enough and you can cut later.
Step 2: Glasholder
Make 3 Glassholders for the Lightbulbs like your Fantasy. I made Spirals.
Cut the Test Tube to a lenght of ~ 10 cm. Dremel and Proxxon help you ;)
Drill a Hole in the Cork for the second UV-Led. ( Pic 2 ) and glue it with Hotglue. At the same time we still manufactures a cap for the test tubes like in the second Picture.
Now we put a on/off Switch in every Device and wire them to the Led´s ( Pic 3 )
Step 3: The Filling
OK, now we experiment in our laboratory.^^
It makes a lot of fun to mix the color.
In these Step--> Use gloves and wear protective eyewear !!!!!
What we have?
Rhodamine B500 !!!!!! Rhodamine B is classified as hazardous under REACH/CLP legislation: Danger
Green Fluorescent Dye
Acridine orange, Bromofluorescein, Fluorescein and Fluorescent green are not classified as hazardous under REACH/CLP legislation
Optical Brightener is classified as hazardous under REACH/CLP legislation: Warning
Fill the Test tubes with destilled Water. The Bulbs also.
Please only very , use very small amounts of the Fluorescent Dyes. Rhodamine immediately stained hands.
The imaging is really hard to leave. ( omg, i think on my red Fingers...........°!° )
Step 4: Interim Result
Even without UV-Light :)
Step 5: OK..........
with UV-Light !!!
It creates a beautiful light . Especially in the evenings , it makes for great Ambient.
