@Eiseldora, there is no fan, it just produces a frequency that humans can hear, because this is the frequency that the light requires, apparently.

@Ant Bee, have you had any previous experience soldering? If not, I'd def recommend having a friend with some experience the first time, it's the kind of thing that makes you wish you had 5 heat-resistant hands. OR: you can just order the required lenght of wire plus driver and just connect the two with a click when you are ready. They call it ready to use EL wire kit and sell them online, good people. If you are willing to get into the soldering business, there are lots of tutorials actually and EL wire is really easy, because you don't need to think about + and - much. As far as my project goes: I cut a piece of jewelry wire the same length as my EL wire and experimented with it and the size of the lettering, until I was pretty certain I could use as much as possible from the EL wire. This was the most arduous task of all, and, as I mentioned, working with the transparent thread to secure it in the spots where it just didn't want to stay close enough to the cardboard. I made holes in the cardboard with a nail Smiley very basic. And if I had bought the easy to use EL wire, I could have completely skipped the step with the soldering, but we have all the tools so why not use them Smiley But basically it is just like working with a really thick tread, except you need to be careful not to bend it too much. EL wire rules! I have been eying it for a very long time, but it wasn't until seeing a live demo and some very cool completed projects recently that I finally realized how easy and rewarding it is.
These scavenger hunts sound better and better...

@Ant Bee, I believe no one here would be able to say no to a week-long HP scavenger hunt, esp one with rhyming clues on scrolls!! You'd probably be able to get some extra credit for sharing some of those Wink

@AugustBell Smiley Thanks, I can't keep my eyes off it, and it only took a couple of hours!! Now I just need to figure out a way to sound-isolate the driver, which makes a really irritating sound.

Ideas anyone?

No more Fear Of The Dark  Cool



A look behind the magic:



and the back of the behind:



This is my first EL wire project, and I have to tell you, the hardest part was working with transparent thread to secure it to the cardboard. However, I will be much more conservative when folding the stuff next time, you can see lots of cracks in the phosphorus.

@lightninglisa, thanks. I wanted to be able to bend them in different ways, and attach him to various objects around the house. The pipe-cleaners aren't super convenient, but they are the best I could come up with (so far).

@jennieingram, these bottles are inspiring! I have been underestimating beads Sad

I am very psyched about a project I have, hopefully I'll finish it this weekend, it's something I've wanted for a very long time Smiley Keep your fingers crossed!!

PenguinSoup, I love Mr. Fox, I am SO looking forward to fall already Smiley

I was just eying the pink cat that Toadface wears in DHI somewhere the other day, but the Fox looks so much friendlier somehow...

Class: Care of Magical Creatures
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Baby Aragog

I should be in Detention every day until the end of next school year. It is a miracle this *tiny* spider, smaller than a pekingese, I tell you, hasn't perished from neglect.







Amazing projects, everyone, I just feel uncomfortable ooh-aaaahing over each and every one, but you fill my heart with warm fuzzy pink things!
