I have seen Menthol alcohol that would come in a slightly green tinted bottle, and maybe with the peroxide bottle ( brown ) you could cover the whole spectrum of gelling the flash. Green for Floresents and Orange for tungston.

This is a great do it yourself.

Today I got around to transferring the remaining alcohol out of the bottle in the medicine cabinet, removed the label with my wife's remedy for removing labels, soak in hot water and use vegtable oil to get the glue off.Cut the top off, which now can be used as a funnel and tried out the diffuser.

I can't tell you how impressed I am with the results. Thanks again for posting.

I am glad someone else tried it. It looks a little lame but works well. Lights up like a big flash bulb with soft light in all directions.
