Might have been easier to paint them before you glued them together
I think it'd be easier to paint the blocks before you stack them and stuff
As you can see
i'v made it!
I'd recommend using a balsa or basswood block. or even plywood You can draw out the 1 inch squares and paint them. Otherwise you have lots of gap where the blocks connect. For plywood or craftwood sheets, cut the sheet into 4 equal rectangles, one smaller square for the butt, then one for the top. Making it hallow would allow you to hide a light inside it…use some foam to cheep the light from sliding around. Even a every day type of flash light could work if it is small enough.
for LED, you can get acrylic or polycarbonate sheets from the chain hardware stores for cheap (under $5 for 8×10). You could use and LED candle from a dollar store (got mine from dollar tree) or during october you can get the LEDs that are made to go into pumpkins. Some of those have multiple LEDs that blink at different times to simulate a flickering effect. For the plastic you could cut the sheet into squares and glue them with an acrylic adhesive to form a cube with one side missing. Then paint the plastic cube with glass paint that you can get from pretty much any craft store. The Gallery Glass brand is pretty common and has 3 different shades of yellow/orange (Sunflower, Peach, and Sunny Yellow). You could probably mix the sunny yellow and white to get a slightly lighter shade of yellow. Glass paint is also sold under the name window color and are used to make stained glass pieces so they should be fairly translucent enough. I've never used them on acrylic or polycarbonate so you may want to google the use of them on those materials first. (my info is based on being located in the US. wasnt sure if you were still in the ukraine and what you have available)
To make it light up, you could use glow in the dark paint!
This is way to AWESOME!
I want to do a arts and crafts for my son's birthday. Where did you get the blocks? I couldn't hear what you said. Seems like a lot of places sell them at a low quantity for so much money.
Can you make it glow
glow in the dark paint at the top
Torches are so easy to make
That was so cool I was wandering if you now how to make a flower pot from mincrath
For the other one you could use glow in the dark yellow paint for the light part of the torch
This would have been much neater if you had painted the blocks before gluing them. Still, such a neat idea 😀
U didnt show how to mix the colors.
good reference, thanks a lot dude!
