i have 1 question! mephisto's finger glows.......i got ideas how i could make it glow but, the problem is.......i dont know from what material i could make it.

i dont think clear resin is an obtion ^-^;; never worked with it before but i think that stuff becomes HEAVY when it hardens.... sooooo...does anyone have an idea of what kind of material i could use to make it lightweight, durable and that is still clear for the leds? <u< >u>;;;;

already much thanks! ;u;

Resin isn't as heavy as you'd think, casting a mold of your finger so that you can custom fit the Mephisto finger onto yours seems like the best way to go about this. LEDs to provide the lighting, and "frosted" paints to help diffuse the glow.

You could also try crafting the finger from sheets of clear acrylic or thin gauge clear plastic sheeting.

Good luck.
