Step 1:

Step 2:

Next mix a batch of thickish pollyfiller in a pot. Now pour the first layer of pollyfiller into a second pot and add some food colouring. Then pour the pollyfiller into the bulb, wash out the pot and repeat with whatever other colours you like.

Step 3:

To get the coloured blobs use a stick and prod the colours to the side of the glass. Once their if you make small circles with the stick it spreads to a nice effect.

Step 4:

Leave the polyfiller to get a bit thicker then insert a screw into the end. Leave the bulb to set and then your done!!! Just go screw it into sometning.

Step 5:

P.S: I left the glass from the bulb on for the nice shiny colour but you dont have to.

P.P.S: Please feel free to post pictures of your lightbulbs in the comments.
