If you’ve ever wanted to play with lasers and fog machines…here’s your chance!!! Dave Lowe, our Home & Family Art Director, figured out for me how to create the ultimate spooky entry for Halloween – a spinning vortex! Looks tricky, but is actually very easy and very Twilight Zone….
2 pieces of scrap wood, about 12″ long
Laser (the stronger the better, a hunting laser is what we used)
2 pipe straps
Screw or nail your scrap wood together at a right angle and turn upside down.
Use hot glue to attach the mirror to the rotpersonal fan, attach it at a slight angle so that it doesn’t spin totally evenly.
Use the pipe straps to attach the laser to the bottom of one board and use the other to attach the fan to the top of board where they are attached together.
Make sure that the laser hits the mirror
Now, turn on the fog machine, turn on the fan and be prepared to be amazed
