Flaming LED Skull

Scary Terry has come up with a Flaming LED Skull project that would be good to greet all your guests on Halloween. Terry also links to this site as a good flaming skull resource.

“I came up with my version of the Flaming Bucky. Instead of mounting the fan inside the head, I use a 4″ fan mounted near the ground and PVC pipe to direct the air into the Bucky skull. The air flow from the 4″ fan is superior to that of the 3” fan. Additionally, instead of using incandescent lamps, I installed super bright leds and they work fine.

The “flames” are made out of silk essence material. They’re sewn in an “X” pattern and attached to the skull with hot glue. My flames look pretty hokey in the daylight, but at night, look fairly realistic.”
