Recently this painting (by Bucket) popped up here on the forums. I showed it to my wife with heavy hints that it would make a nice birthday or Christmas gift. She surprised me and got it for my birthday :cheers:

Only problem was that the print is a little darker in person. It makes it hard to see the faces (and Yodas face is priceless in the painting). Not to be foiled we came up with a solution. We simply framed it in a shadow box..... but put it in the front up against the glass. I then mounted some dimmable LEDs from amazon in the back. The result is a perfectly backlit picture that brings out all of the hidden details. We are pleased with the results :D

This backlight mod of a picture is right up there with the guy making his own heated blanket.
Only Ural or should I say Russian motorcycle owners can come up with this kinda stuff.

It really does look darn good, congrats.

Yes, found that in Denver!
The prints they had in the gallery were all bright and crisp. I'm sure they'd do an exchange if you wanted.

But it looks like you made it work just fine!
