Study with fireplace, part 6

by brae  

After getting the firebox finished, all that was left was to use light to simulate fire.  I bought a resin piece online that has clear portions to allow light to shine through.  It came with an orange bulb, but I added a red bulb to give more depth of color to the fire.  After darkening the bottom and back of the firebox with diluted black paint, I drilled a hole in the side of the firebox and fed the lights through.

The lights sit inside an opening in the resin log piece, and the wires run up the chimney breast and through the ceiling.

The result is a warm glowing fireplace with flames.
