Step 1: Build Wire Frame
Take the Little Bit of chicken wire or wire mesh and sculpt into a volcano shape. Cut off excess wire. Staple wire volcano frame to the wooden base. Cut a hole in the top the same size as the Tupperware. Put tupperware into volcano opening. Weave a Little Bit of wire through the mesh around the tupperware to secure it.
Step 2: Paper Mache the Volcano
Bring 10 cups of water to a boil. Add 2 cups of flour. Boil for a Little Bit (2-3 minutes) and let cool. Shred newspaper into Little Bits. Dip into flour mixture. Completely cover wire frame with 2 or 3 layers of newspaper. Let dry.
Step 3: Paint
Spray paint the whole volcano your base color. In this example I made it green. Let it dry. Tape off the lower section in the shape you desire. Cover the area below tape with a Little Bit of newspaper. Spray on your second color. Let it dry. Remove tape. Spray more paint in your second color if you want it to drip down. Let dry.
Step 4: Make a LIttle Bit of Lava
Tear tinfoil into 3 pieces of different sizes. Spray paint both sides with your 2nd spray paint color. Let them dry for a Little Bit. Fold them around the blades of the Little Bit fan and twist to secure.
Step 5: Make the Little Bit Circuit
Build Little Bits Circuit as shown in the picture using the fan, wire x2, light wire, RBG LED and a power source. Set the Little Bits RBG LED to the colors you like.
Step 6: Place Circuit in Volcano
Place the circuit into the tupperware in the top of the volcano a Little Bit at a time. Make sure the fan is on the top of the circuits with the tinfoil coming up. Make sure the cicuit is all in the tupperware except the light wire (keep the light wire connceted to the cicuit.). Wrap the Little Bit light wire around the volcano starting at the top.
Step 7: Now Your Done!! Enjoy More Than a Little Bit!!!!!!!
Turn it on in the dark and watch the lava flow!
