Step 1: Materials

  • Glass
  • Paint
  • Thin Cardboard Paper
  • X acto knife
  • Tape
  • Air brush
  • Copy of LOTR Silhouettes
  • LEDs
  • Wood

Step 2: Create a Stencil

To create a stencil of the picture, place it on top of the cardboard paper and use the x acto knife to cut out the figures on the paper

Step 3: Paint the Glass

Tape your stencil to the glass and use an airbrush to paint the glass. Spray paint could also work here but air brush is recommended. This step will take several coats or until the paint won't let any light shine through.

Step 4:

You will need a piece of wood that is as long as your glass. Once you have the wood cut a line in the middle as thick as glass. Cut it deep enough that it holds the glass but doesn't cover up too much of the paint. This will be what holds your glass.

Step 5: Light It Up

Add a strip of your favorite LEDs. I used Flex Fire LEDS.
