Next, I took an old glass I didn't mind sacrificing, and taped it over the whole with duct tape. Couldn't find the black/dark, so had to make do with the gigantic roll of white I bought at home depot today. I put a socket with a red bulb up through the hole. The main thing is for the glass to be clear, and fixed securely to the bottom--so that no water leaks under it. Will have to rehydrate some polymers, and possibly get some more, but I'd like to get the witch kitchen so that all the lights can be turned on automatically with timers.
I also started putting out a couple of the basic things I pull out every year.
