Retro Rainbow by dropsofjupiter88 Retro Rainbow by dropsofjupiter88
I emptied a light bulb (look it up on google) filled it with water, and then put a drop of food coloring in and snapped a picture. Then in photoshop I filled an empty layer using gradient tool reflected gradient. Then on that layer I changed the blending mode. Different modes work better on some pictures.

This is damn good. I really wish there was a way that you could stop the colouring from spreading and let it get stuck in a light bulb like that.

Would make one hell of a souvenir.
