After casting my "Individual Things," I wanted to try to put them in a more ambitious setting. I ended up building the box from scratch and painted it with about a million coats of enamel so it would be very shiny.
I casted my "Things" in clear resin, drilled holes in their butts, and inserted LEDs. I ran the wires through the edge of the wood so that they're almost invisible. Then, for good measure and because I had it laying around, I installed an aquarium pump which I attached to a tube of blue water.
