Trolls are cute! You can update your Troll so that it lights up with LEDs! They can then be used as nightlights, bath toys, Christmas ornaments or Halloween decor. Learn to use the new polymer material called ShapeLock!

Heat about 4 Tablespoons of ShapeLock in a ceramic (plastic will not work) cup of water for two minutes. Use a metal spoon (plastic will not work) to flatten and elongate the material. Make it as thin as you can.
ShapeLock hardens quickly so you may need to reheat it for 2 minutes before you apply it to the LED sphere. If the material is transparent and the correct size to wrap around the sphere, you are ready for the next step.
If the head is not to your liking (or too heavy for the troll), do not put the head into the microwave! This will destroy the LED . Microwave(~2 minutes) a cup of water separately. Then soak the LED sphere in the hot water to soften the polymer and knead off the polymer one softened layer at a time. You may need to repeat this step multiple times.
You can use the belly button area to glue a magnet or jewel. I like magnets since I can hang small notes on him with other magnets or belly button jewelry. A 8mm magnet will fit perfectly in his belly.
