    to me, your circuit screams "i can get hurt". you should not play with AC until you get more experience. you didn't size components properly

    also you did not complete the trigger circuit. your triac (shown as SCR) needs voltage across Gate/A2 (or in case of SCR, gate/K). this means using two wires. your DC circuit only connects to SCR through one wire - you are missing reference (should connect negative side of battery to K/A2 of SCR).

    next your component values would not allow SCR/triac to turn on. if you want to experiment and troubleshoot your circuit before you connect to AC, replace triac with an LED. if your circuit can light up an LED, it can trigger triac.

    try this circuit it is a little safer using leds,a mosfet and a few transistors on a safe 12v supply......
