Good evening everyone,

Here is my latest creation, a luminowheel plasma lamp. The luminowheel plasma is a powerful plasma that uses watchparts to shine!!!
Here's what it looks like :











Building it was fairly easy, all it took was a brass candle holder, a brass cup, a glass bottle some simulated water and watchparts... the light comes from a flat LED lamp (usually used for cupboards)... and a lot of imagination of course !!

Have a nice day,

David

Nice!

Do the parts just float around inside?
Like those glitter lava lamps?

Sweet, is that simulated water some kind of gel? or did it turn solid?

Hello evryone!,

Unfortunately the parts dont float around, they are just there... and I used simulated water so it has turned solid now Smiley

Sorry I didn't understand what simulated water was.

Thank you Smiley

Actually I didnt know what it was either until I saw it at the craft store, I think simulated water has a great potential for steampunk creations... although a little expensive.

Simulated water is what Model RailRoaders us to make streams and rivers

It comes in a sachet and you just add water.

I'm not entirely sold on the watch parts, but I must say I quite like this otherwise.

Okay, that made me laugh.

Simulated water - just add water.

LOL!

Ah, so it's like the stuff they also use for flowers, well they do over here in the Netherlands for our stereotypical tulips  Cheesy Keep in mind that you really need to seal the tube off very well because otherwise the water will evaporate out...

Like the concept. Simulated water is something I need to look into for a current project.  Thanks.  Looking forward to seeing more of your creations.
