Lichtenburg Effect in Acrylic Case?

Can I use the Lichtenburg effect on this Sunbeam ACTS-T Transparent Clear Acrylic ATX Desktop Ultra Tech Station Acrylic Case.

Also, does anyone know if I would need to use printer ink toner to see the lines, or is there a way I can connect a Van de Graff generator to the acrylic to run a voltage through it so that LED lights would be enough to show off the effect? Or, is there no way to get a good enough reaction to see without ink toner without using a particle accelerator on the acrylic?

    Very cool effect but I've only seen it in solid acrylic blocks and thick acrylic panels. Once created the lines are permanent. They're considered works of art:
