I’m working on a design for a birthday gift (deadline 4/20), and wondering if I can take it up a notch with edge lighting. But I haven’t done anything like that before, so I’m not sure if my design would work and have no idea where to start on the electrical parts. Does anybody with a clue mind telling me if I’m crazy?
Here’s the basic design:
(Not shown: engraved design filling much of the blue rectangle.)
Should I still be able to get a good glow out of LEDs that are only up against the back 1/16” of the acrylic? What’s the best bet for wiring that up, and where do I look for supplies? (Without soldering or microcontrollers, since sourcing/learning that stuff isprobably beyond the time budget I have for this project.)
