create a small animation by paining a few scenes over top each other and having them powered on off one after another. for example

picture Ain the phosphor runa connector line out then insulate it

next paint picture b right over top with a bit of change to it and coat it then insulate and then maybe one more picture then a little circuit that turns picture one for a breif time and as it goes off the second picture is powered and then the third returning to the first..I hope thi s makes sense. I want to know if it can be layered like that and then I want some
