47f1f2b597c2e0d97d65090709fcd1e0.jpgso... I decided its time to boils some water and dip the mask(3-5seconds)

Im planning to wires 4 (2each eye) round hat LED 5mm yellow diffused 1.9-2.4volt to... maybe one 9volt battery...with 330ohm resistor each for the LEDs, just like in my drawing above.... so, i need some pointers, is it my LED setup are correct?

Thank you in advanced.

You will want to cut a lot of extra material out so you don't overheat like mad in the mask.

yea, maybe i will cut some part of my mask or i just wear a head ban like the 80s break dancer LOL!... but firstly i need to know my led setup because i don't know nothing about electrical (i just read it on the net)is it the 330ohm resistor kind of overkill?... and then the positioning the eye led, i read in the forum the LED position are directly below the eyes....

Thanks sylverbard for your input.

Hi ya Louis,

 

Test it out before cutting into it, you  may have plenty of air holes and would be better than the average helmet.  Once cut you cant add. I have cut all mine in half but they are  thick cardboard, I have been very lucky in my years of trooping mine have never melt ....its preparing  the mask is the trick :)

Hi, all... doing some update with my jawa mask build...

 

 

 

 

I decided to abandoned the 5mm LED with resistor thingy, and decided to go ahead with a waterproof candle led...

I sanded the inside dome and stick a 'post-it' yellow thing...but the light still 'white'...so, I cut the dome... and attached it to a plastick bottle cap

To mount the eyes straight on a Hockeymaske, I have built with Worbla a construction. So you can balance the oblique in the mask and Fix the Eyes on it.

Thanks MJ, Silverbard and all ... as for 'worbla' here in Indonesia we got similar to worbla it's called 'Demit'(I google it yesterday) same method using heat(heat gun) to formed... But I don't have any experience with both(worbla or Demit)... I bought DAS clay and some foam(both its on the way from my local online seller)..and maybe one sheet (A4) of Demit, going to search the cheapest one LOL!!
