What's up /diy/,
Coming up on me an my girlfriends 2 year anniversary, and we've always made each other handmade gifts for our relational milestones (I usually make her jewelry or something based on something she likes). I'm not an amazing craftsman, but I'm a mechanic and I've always liked to tinker so I get around.
This time I'm making her a bottle-lamp out of one of our favorite sodas, Cheerwine. I emptied the bottle, cleaned it thoroughly, then hand-mixed in a translucent red die into a resin used to act as fake water in flower decorations. I actually think it turn out great, the only problem now is the light source.
I was planning on using a light base, but there are so many out there that are colored that I can't seem to find a clear one. Next I was going to use a bottle glorifier, but they all have liqour names all over them, so that won't work. Final idea I had was off some guy who makes bottle lamps off ebay, but the faggot won't sell me one of the lights he uses and wont tell me where he gets them. here's the link that shows some side views of the light, does anyone know what kind it is so I could buy one?
Any other light source suggestions would be great. Preferably something I could buy fully assembled (I know the horror), because I start college again soon an our anniversary is in less than a month. Bonus if it can be powered with an electrical outlet.
Money isn't a huge obstacle, but I'd like to keep it under 30$ if possible.
