I had an idea pop into my head last week. I had no clue it would work. Basically its a shadow box. I made it with (mostly) Staples Products. I made my box out of Black project board. It took 5 30x40" boards. Two sided tape, and Aluminum tape.
I wanted a simple picture, something easy to cut around. I found this picture:
I had this printed 24x36. When I got home tonight, I started this project. I placed my picture on the black project board and taped it down. I then took a razor and cut out all the white in the picture. I built my box, and took aluminum foil and lined the inside of the box.
Next was the frame. I took my white sheet 24x40" paper and laid it on top of the cut out. I then took another project board and cut out a square to make the frame. I sandwiched it all together and then placed it on top of my box. I taped all the corners down with aluminum tape.
Next the lighting. I took my sensor night lights and attached them to an extension cord. And hung them down in the center of the box. I made it so you could change the effect of the picture, by moving the lights up and down.
When I first saw it, I stepped back. I was completely shocked. It was creepy I mean it looks like a guy looking in on you, and then it looks like the guy has his arms crossed. I found out that every color that is inside the box is showing in the picture. Like the picture below (sorry my camera does not like darkness.) Inside the colors are brown, white, black, and two glowing red led lights.
