This kaleidoscope has an acrylic liquid-filled cell. The cell is one of the ones available from PolymerClayProjects and is filled with silicone oil and sealed with epoxy. I also glued a black acrylic circle to the bottom of the object chamber so it would be a sidelit cell with a black background.
I didn’t quite like how that looked – you could see the epoxy through the end of the cell, so I made a polymer clay endcap to make it look a little neater.
The cell contains polymer clay objects, including a sculpted swallow like the ones I used on the exterior, my own lampworked glass pieces and bead-filled ampules, beads, metal findings, and cathedral and dichroic glass. I probably should have used a few less items in the cell but it makes a great image.
