You HAVE to see the video! I've been thinking of other ideas to use fiber optic wires. At one point, I was in the car and it just HIT ME! E.T.'s finger when he phones home! E.T. and his little arm are hand painted with acrylic paint. The fiber optic wire I used is from an old UFO lamp and his finger lights up orange because I used a drop of OPI Chromatic Orange from the Color Paints collection.
