DIY Light-painting tubes and accessories

It took me 3 years before I started to sell tubes, and for those who have been with me since the beginning, you know how important it is for me to promote DIY solutions. My tubes are very expensive to ship in some part of the world and creating your own can be a good economical alternative, but there’s more than this. I highly recommend you to try to make your own so you can play with different visuals and maybe come up with your own style with the tubes as a starting base.
