The internet is full of lies and deception. Not that this should be of any sort of revelation. I stumbled upon a fantastic image of a cloud made from cotton batting, brilliantly lit from the inside by a couple of electric tea lights. I thought, what a simple and cool project. So I made one.

Everything went splendidly until it came to lighting my cloud. Even if I had had twenty tea lights there was no way it would be as bright as in the photo. I was left deflated, a semi-failed project because I trusted a random tumblr image. I’m still in search of some LED lights that might be bright enough. I might just end up placing a wired lamp fixture inside and see how well a simple light bulb lights it up. Till then here is the cloud lit by placing it under a canister light.
