Some test shots..

I will be using EL Wire from MT Lighting Solutions in orange/red for the neon. I've ordered 6' of .009 mm wire.

Ok, how does that work then - going around the perimeter of the letters or what?

You can bend EL wire pretty tight before it develops a dark spot. When I get the wire I will add some images of the process.
