Step 1: Gather Materials: Rubber Mold of Wax Chrysanthemum, Water, LED
1. Equinox Rubber mold of wax Chrysanthemum
3. Waterproof rgb LED cocktail light
4. Random chandelier crystal (optional)
Step 2: Prep & Freeze LED Chrysanthemum
Originally i was going to use toothpicks or some sort of support structure to hold the LED component in place while the water froze.
After fumbling about i decided to freeze remnants of crystal from an old chandelier... which really helped stabilize & level the LED during freezing.
It also helps keep the LED in place so turning it on or off is easier when the seam is over the freeze line.
Step 3: Ice Mold & LED Glow Check
Try a glow field test by gently twisting the LED to turn on. The ice will hold it snugly.
Remove the ice chrysanthemum from the rubber mold.
Step 4: Enjoy Your LED Ice Chrysanthemum!
Pop the waterproof LED ice chrysanthemum out of the rubber mold and enjoy the glow!
