    Simple recipe here, a bunch of those Amac boxes from The Container Store, a coat of Tamiya Clear Pearl on the inside of them. Mixed in some Tamiya Clear Red and Clear Blue into an overpriced bottle of Water Effects from Games Workshop. Once the Clear Pearl cured, I filled the boxes up, left them to dry in room temperature, and a couple days later here we are.

    Comments and Crit more than welcome, as always. Hope you like.

    This is actually really good. It never made sense to me how energy held a cube shape, but because of the clear boxes yours use, they look more like cube containers for liquid energy instead, which makes much more sense.

    Thanks. They're easy, it's worth trying.
    Yeah, I just had to take them out of my garage. I guess it was too cold in there. I kept them up in my room and they solidified in two days.
    Thanks. Pretty much what I go for in everything I take on.
    (Thanks.)
    Yeah, I always saw the cubes as a shaped force-field kind of thing. And that's pretty much the look I was going for with these.
    Umm...

    A bottle Games Workshop Water Effects - $25
    The Container Store Amac boxes - $0.40 each, I have 37.
    Tamiya Clear Pearl Spray - $6-ish
    Tamiya Clear Red & Clear Blue bottles - $2.50 each

    Depends a bit on how many boxes you want to make. One bottle of the Water Effects is going to fill about 40 boxes. So given you start from having none of these, you'll literally go about a Dollar a cube.
