I made another item for Mom for Mother’s Day, because who doesn’t like a flashing edge lit LED sign with a crown on top? Cut from Proofgrade 1/8" acrylic.

Here it is flashing:

And a closeup of the “jewels,” which I did by filling in the engraved areas with UV resin to which I added some PearlEx mica powders (Interference Gold for the diamonds and I think it was True Blue for the oval) before exposing to UV light:

The LED light was one I bought off of Ebay a long time ago based on a recommendation from @jamesdhatch. They are now up to about $5.50-6.00 each. I just ordered three more, because I think this sort of thing is going to be popular.
