This is a build log for my Mewtwo cloning jar desk lamp. I used an old milk frother, wooden box, mewtwo toy, clay, wires, a magnet, fish tank air pump, neopixel ring lights, arduino and water.

For the showcase video, I used flash paper for fire and used my grinder on steel to create sparks.

I cut apart, filled with clay and repainted an old Mewtwo toy from Carls Jr.

An aquarium pump provided the bubbles.

To give a metallic look to the base, I took a wooden box and wrapped foil tape around it, before roughing it up.

I used neopixel ring lights and an arduino nano to create the lighting effects.
