Step 1: Making the Base

I created the base of the arc reactor by taking a lid of a jar. I then drilled a hole in it for the wires to be thread through.

Step 2: LED's

After drilling the hole in the base, I fed wires through it, attaching one to the LED's and the other to a switch which is then connected to a 12 volt battery.

Step 3: LED's

After drilling the hole in the base, I fed wires through it, attaching one to the LED's and the other to a switch which is then connected to a 12 volt battery.

Step 4: Wires

I created 3 small wire circles which will be used in the center of the reactor.

Step 5: Black Ring

I then cut a black circle and painted it black, which was then glued to the body of the reactor.

Step 6: Full Body

I then created the body by attaching three small bits of plastic to the ring, with screws in the middle. A plastic mesh was added underneath. I then placed 2 golden rings above the mesh.

Step 7: Finish

I then glued everything together. Now you're done.

    That's awesome! I might try a slightly different version with some scrap EL wire I have laying around...
