Thread: Question about making a blade...

  1. #1

    Default Question about making a blade...

    In the tutorial for making el blades it says that you fold the EL Wire. Does this mean i need double the length of the blade. For example i want a 30" blade so i need 60" incehes of el wire right?

    Thanks

    5 times the length, you will need enough to fold it 5 times to go in the diffuser.

    Nope... you want to get as much wire in there as you can. The blade and diffuser can handle 5 strands. So you want 5 x 30"... 150".
