Has anyone used the colored sheets of plastic (called theater gels) to color the cut outs of a foam kin?
I am carving the space invaders kin and in the original game each row was a different color.Image

I was thinking using a strip of each of color attached inside the kin would give a good effect when light with a strong enough bulb. Also could be good for other kins as well, like the dragons to give them red eyes with out the whole kin being colored with a bulb.

What is everyones thoughts?

These are what I am refering to
