Step 2: Making Your Custom Parts
well take your clay and form a ring than add 3 flat pieces we will call this the 3 ring this will
play a big role in the reactor bake it and once it is hard spray paint it then we have a main part.
Step 3: The Ring
okay now the semi clear ring is easy to do just take copper wire and wrap it around for 10
sectors it will take long it will seem more movie accurate if you overlap also it will take long but
you can add silver thin wire on the sides of each copper piece for just the copper
wire and 10 sectors its about 20 minutes but be patient.
Step 4: Coming Together
okay here is where it is pieced together take the big washer and place it on the
light then glue it on then take your 3 ringed pice and glue it on the middle take the washer
and glue it on the top then take your completed copper pieced semi clear ring and
glue it on .
