Electroluminescent Bar Sign Project

A friend of mine is coming up to his 40th Birthday and he’s having a cocktail party to celebrate.

I’ve decided I wanted to make him a “Neon” bar sign for a gift.

Neon signs are expensive, use lots of power, generate heat and are generally not a suitable DIY project, so I’ve decided to use Electroluminescent Wire, or EL Wire for short.

I’ve been playing around with different fonts and colours and have settled on the following design.

The plan is to make it about A3 sized and have the back made out of black perspex.

I’ll document the project over the next few weeks while it’s being made.
