making sturdy optical fiber figurine?

Postby jantran » Mon Jul 06, 2015 5:46 pm

I had the idea of making a figurine from optical fibers and control the colors with an Arduino.
What can I use to make the optical fibers sturdy? I'm thinking of putting them inside some kind of tube and/or covering them inside some kind of hardening translucent material. I'm sure someone can think of a better idea.

Inspirations:
