Make a flaming LED skull

Here’s a modded version of the “HotHead” (aka Lunatic’s Flaming Skull)” Scary Terry writes – “I use a 4″ fan mounted near the ground and PVC pipe to direct the air into the Bucky skull. The air flow from the 4″ fan is superior to that of the 3″ fan. Additionally, instead of using incandescent lamps, I installed super bright leds and they work fine.” [via] – Link.
