Making a Chroma Cube from Epoxy Resin with Dichroic Film | As seen in Guardians of the Galaxy

Dichroic window film has a magical coating that transmits and reflects light of different colours. For this project I use a dichroic film that transmits blue and pink but reflects gold, enabling it to create a spectacular, colourful optical effect.

This optical effect is used by renowned artist Jack Storms to create shimmering cubes of crystal, one of which was commissioned to appear in the broker scene of Guardians of the Galaxy, and took 6 months to complete!

My version was much quicker (and cheaper!) but the end result still looks amazing.
