Soooo yeah. I think I messed up. I'll preface this with, this is my first time working with all the materials. So I didn't think things through, and now I'm afraid I can't fix it. Here's the lowdown:
I'm making the Transistor for a costume contest that's in about a week and a half. I'll add a pic for reference, but a few things went wrong/I didn't think about it until it was too late. I used pink insulation foam for the inside of the sword, I didn't paint it white/blue because when I tested the diffusion, it looked fine. So I glued the insulation foam core to my base, which is plexiglass, annnnd now you can see 1) the glue (it's clear but you can still see the glue) 2) you can tell it's slightly pinkish. There's no way to try again, I can't unglue it and I don't have the time or money to buy more plexiglass. I can't use the other side as the front, because I have a pvc pipe visible.
Also despite me priming the insulation foam, it looks like the weld-on #16 glue I used it eating through the foam
