Now, follow these steps to complete your glass:
The first step is that you have to prepare a plastic lens. If you want to make it glowing then it is very important to make the lenses a little cloudy. Hold the lens in your hand and use sandpaper to make it cloudy. Rub it with the help of sandpaper for not less than 5 minutes. Try to make it cloudy.
After making your lenses look cloudy, you need to work on the shiny aspect of the glasses. Now, you have to make your glasses glowing whenever an LED light falls on them. You should take the transparent tape to get that perfect look. Take tape and paste it on the lenses. If any extra tape is left, cut it out. Now, you can say that lenses are ready.
Your lenses are almost ready, but you need your lenses for “Mapping the Electronics”, so don’t put those lenses in case. You have put these lenses on the cardstock, now you have to trace the outlines of the lenses with the help of permanent markers. You are using cardstock to block the LED light so that it can provide coverage for the lens and for the eyes. It may be possible that light can affect your eyes, so you need protection.
Place the Lily pad holder in the center of the sketch of the lens which you have made right now. Take care of negative and positive holes while tracing around them. Cut the card stock and try to place it over the lenses. You have to make holes at both the poles, so use a needle to do that. But, be careful while doing this.
Place your lenses as it is in the frame. But do this step after adding cardstock to the lenses. Bend the cathode and anode of LED; you have to take 2 LEDs. At the back, place the legs of one LED but through the positive and negative holes on a diagram.
Repeat this process, with the second LED. Be careful while doing this exercise with LEDs.
The last thing which you have to do is add a battery that will complete your process. Press the on button after adding the battery.
So, now you have created anime shiny glasses for yourself, you can use these glasses for showing off among your friends. But try to wear these glasses in the dark so that you can grab all the attention.
