That fire portal is pretty awesome.

Your using clear silicone? I thought it was hot glue gun.

Would you mind posting a link to where you are getting your LED's? I would like to try making some of my own things. Also I would like to know what parts you are using to wire them.

Have you thought about making teleport pads or color pools?

So you want to know the secrets of my art???? Oh well, it isn't hard to figure out... :)

Yeah, its clear silicone paste... I tried hot glue before and it didn't have the right "workability and durability" of silicone paste.

I get the LEDs from several different places on ebay for the most part... I try to order from American sellers because in my experience, ordering from china (where most leds and tea candles come from) causes too many shipping delays... You just have to search around... Heck, the elemental portals
LEDs come from dollar store ornament candles... Truthfully, dollar stores, you can find a lot of things there...

I bought a wholesale lot of LED tea candles to get the flickering circuits (their too hard to get any other way-and they come with everything else you need...) The only thing a person may need is a very light gauge of wire for extensions and a soldering iron... Make sure if you have to solder to make sure you use electrical solder and not plumbers solder...

As far as other items, I have already made what I call a "wishing well" which has a color changing led in the well. I am trying to make a floor tile with a light up glyph on it (this it hard as hell to disguise) and have started on a teleport pad on floor tile (but I got sidetracked with all the portals). I'm also working on a wall fountain with magic light in it (The two designs I am working on is a peeing cherub and a dancing chick-a bit cleche' I know)...

I would like for anyone with ideas on items I can make to please let me know...

Seems to me this would be a great thing to do a power generator or some such for Sci-Fi.... Love the fire portal!!!!! And all of them.

Wow...those look amazing! :) Specially when placed together as a set, showing the theme across the various portals

Awesome!

My only thought, however, is that I might prefer white light for the air portal?

I started with a white LED, but one of the wired broke, so i had to use the yellow one... I am trying to get some more white LEDs to use on newer portals...

Well, here I am again. I got sidetracked and finally got around to working on a large freestanding portal.

Here is some pics of first casting. This is just a prototype... The final product will be cleaned up a bit.

The outside diameter of the ring is 4 inches.

I have made it so that the portal event horizon effect can be removed from the portal ring.

I am currently working on a base that will house the LED and Battery case.

All of these pieces are being caste with high impact dental plaster and should be pretty durable.




I will keep you guys up to date as I complete this project.
