Im new here, hope someone can share there experiences with me.
project goal:
Led eliminated block of resin. Low energy, Low light.

I have no experience with resin, but I have an idea. I want to cast a block shape of milky/transparant resin 1 cm thick (no clue about the composition). I'm wondering if I drill small holes in and put some leds in there, would the resin defuse it equally?. if there is a better idea out there Im all ears.

Might sound silly but a sugar cube may work well. They look white but are actually clear.

Theres a 555 project competition thing on youtube where someone makes an analogue synth and uses hot glue to make leds 20mm round, it looks pretty good.
I've sanded leds with emery a few times to get better diffusion for backlighting.
