Description How To

With the LED Art Kits you can create your own LED light show with this easy-to-assemble, no-solder kit. The color-changing LEDs slowly cycle through combinations of red, green and blue light, which interact to create endlessly evolving patterns. The black, 5-by-4-inch mat board frame has a 3-by-2-inch window, and the assembled kit is designed to sit on a flat surface such as a shelf or desktop.

Perfect for setting the mood of any room, the LED Art Kit also makes a great nightlight. It uses 2 AA batteries (not included), and is viewable in a variety of light conditions, but in low light casts a glow on its surroundings. The downloadable instructions are easy to follow, with clear photos of each step, and include tips for making your piece of art unique. Assembly requires just a few simple tools, and the use of a glue gun is optional.

Also available in our No Soldering Required Bundle.

  • The kit includes:
  • 4" x 3" plastic screen
  • 5" x 4" matboard frame
  • Battery case w/ wire leads
  • 3 RGB color-changing LEDs
  • 2 butt splices
  • 2 glue dots

Perfect first project May 22, 2011
Reviewer: Rockin' Scientist from Redwood City, CA United States  
To the reviewer who said it only glows red after a while: change your batteries.. the multicolor LEDs are more efficient at generating red than other colors, so when the voltage drops you only see red.  New batteries are the solution.

Like a lava lamp without the lamp June 12, 2010
Reviewer: Paul Krueger from Fishers, IN United States  
Just put this together with my 9-year-old.  He couldn't do the butt splices but did everything else.  The project gave rise to questions like "What's a diode?" which was kind of the point.  We chose not to attach the "projector" to the frame because we like the way it looks from a greater distance.  Stood the frame up with part of a binder clip.  It's glowing away on the mantel right now.

Simple Project February 12, 2010
Reviewer: keith fox from marysville, OH United States  
This could all be done with a child as a great learning tool. It involves using two AA batteries (not included) powering up three LED's that change colors automatically and crimping them in a simple series electricity setup.  The only thing the adult needs to assist with is crimping with pliers because it takes a strong hand, but the rest is simple setup and probably took me 5 minutes to put together.  Looks great and is smaller than I imagined, I thought it was a regular photo frame size but rather a smaller frame. This also requires tape that is not included, directions say to use clear tape but I used masking tape which was slightly better to use because it's a little more durable. Looks good on the desk or next to the bed, anywhere you put it, it nicely adds a little style with low voltage batteries. :)

Great Simple Project December 31, 2009
Reviewer: Jerry Heiselman from Des Moines, IA United States  
I got one of these for my daughter.  She liked to sleep with the lights on, so I thought this would be perfect.

It is simple to assemble, though I agree with the other reviewer in that the butt splices are difficult.  Just solder the LEDs together.

My only other complaint is that after some time, the LEDs only light red now.  I don't know if they've worn out or what.

Nice idea February 10, 2009
Reviewer: Ben Combee from Brooklyn, NY United States  
It's a very simple kit, and I really like the idea of having the three LEDs get out of sync.  The screen is a nicely designed way to project the light.  However, the butt splices were difficult to work with; I ended up just soldering the LEDs together.  Also, the glue dots dry only work for short periods of time, so you'll need to find a better way to attach the screen to the art circuit for long term viewing.
