Version 1: Glowing Bricks on a Non-Glowing Base
The results are really quite impressive for the minimal amount of complexity involved. All of the time is spent “laying” the bricks.
The picture doesn’t exactly do the effect justice since you can’t experience the dizzying glow.
Rather than pasting fluorescent paper to the paper roll, you might choose to use fluorescent spray paint for this Halloween Decoration. If you’re somewhat “artistic” you might try making swirling patterns and such. Or, perhaps you can use several colors and “splatter” the paint atop the roll. If you would rather have “bricks,” then simply cut a stencil out of a piece of cardboard: take some cardboard and cut a shape OUT of the cardboard. The shape might be a perfect rectangle. Or, you might make the edges very uneven and more “stone like.” Of course, you can make a few different stencils. You might even choose round shapes (like river rocks.) No matter, once you have the stencils in hand, simply lie one on the paper, apply the spray pain through it, and move on to the next. NOTE: watch out for “build-up” and “drippage” from the stencil. You can choose to either completely fill the shape (make a solid brick or shape) or simply “hit” the edges of the stencil so that only the edges glow. This will make the middle of the shape taper off into darkness. I prefer the latter. It saves time, paint, “drippage”, and looks more “cool.”
Cut some shapes out of cardboard to create a stencil.
Spray paint a pattern onto the paper roll.
