For the large bead, the LED is inside the polymer clay and survives being baked in the oven for a few minutes. The current runs through the wires to a battery pack at the clasp. We love the subtle glow. We don’t want to m8ke light up jewelry that looks like the stuff they sell at Disneyworld when it gets dark. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, we’re just going for a more refined sort of thing.
The eye highlight in the painting is a tiny white LED and the ring has 2 lavender LED’s and is constructed of polymer clay on canvas with acrylic paint. Conductive paint and conductive tape are underneath the paint and extend to the hardware on the back of the canvas. Our next few paintings will be landscapes.
