Make a glittering
jammed in resin —
with no soldering!
By Kris DeGraeve
I wanted to make a night light with LEDs encased in resin that required no
soldering — I can solder but I don’t really like to. The project turned out to be
one of my favorites, and beyond being a little tweaky getting all of the LEDs
set, it’s simple. The power comes from 2 coin batteries, so there’s no risk of
shock. And the finished product is a glossy, atmospheric light with a soft
glow that looks great between my Martian lunch box and little plastic dudes
landing on the moon.
