Q: making frame for pictures.

A: Do you know?

You remember when your parents told you that the mechanical stork dropped off robots at everyone's house? Wrong! This is how it REALLY begins. With magical, futuristic, blue sparkly sperm. Hehehe...

For this I broke a lightbulb, used the little spring inside of it and put a drop of water on it. Then used reflective blue paper as the background.
