Making the Goldeneye Light - Resin, Body Casting, LED, Woodturning, Gold Leaf
In this video I show how I made a very unusual LED eyeball light, using many different creative techniques.
I would like to thank Scott Grove ( Imagine Grove ) for giving me the Easy Inlay Mother of pearl, the alginate and some casting resin. we had a great time sharing the Easy Wood Toools stand at Makers Central.
I would also like to thank my friend David Lowe RPT for giving me the Gold Leaf I used to make the iris.
Most of my mold making and resin casting supplies come from MBFG in Belfast, they are a fantastic company and also supply great quality alginate.
