So I've been thinking a lot about how I can give my close friends and family a really cool and unique gift. At first I thought I could just give them prints that I've made myself of my photographs, but then I thought it might be fun to make miniature light boxes and a couple film slides that they can put inside and have on their desks or wherever. Maybe a little switch to flip on a light inside so they can look at the slides. Neat idea, but there are a few issues with this plan. Obviously, slide film is delicate. It probably would not respond well to being constantly illuminated. I don't want to give someone a nice photo only to see that it has completely faded within a couple weeks or months. I was hoping that I could use a couple of tiny led lights inside the box to illuminate it through a piece of diffusion tissue. Alternatively, I could maybe make some kind of elaborate clear resin block that the slide could fit into and it would be illuminated by ambient daylight. I know I'm not the first person to imagine tiny display boxes, but I'm just not sure whether it's feasible as a lasting gift. I don't need them to last years and years, but maybe a few months in a fairly dim dining room or office would be good. Is there something that I can treat the slides with to protect them from fading or put them behind some kind of glass that would protect them? Alternatively, could I print the images on some kind of transparency that I could put in a box? Maybe it would look exactly like a slide, but be more durable like illuminated signs on sidewalks in big cities? I hope someone can help me, when I've searched for this online, I only find links to making light boxes for film inspection and print-making. Also, when I say small, I mean 120 film. I don't have access to a 4x5 camera. Thanks!
