Fascinating. Lookedup someinfo and no one mentioned which wire is the ground. The angel wires are ultra thin, but apparently carry the AC, low voltage current? Is the phosphor coated wire the ground? Great sign, and I can see this as a whole small business enterprise. How many stores would love to have a lit up sign? Probably a lot. I put this up on fb too.

Great project and video. Of course, this is what we normally expect when we see you post something. This has me thinking of all kinds of new projects that I won't have time to do, but at least it is keeping my mind busy.

Thanks for sharing this with us.

I couldn’t tell you which was the ground wire. Each color is on its own circuit and is powered be two AA batteries. The little power supply switch let’s you choose between steady on, slow flash, and fast flash.

I think you can get an AC power supply for a sign that stays on a long time. And you can buy lights that flash in sequence so it looks like they're climbing or traveling. Looks like there are many colors available too. Splicing and shortening is a rather tedious looking process. I wonder how they hold up in daylight. I have a couple of trees in the yard that would look great with these along the branches and trimmed to fit. But not if they fade. El lights for trunks, LEDs for leaves. Nifty, too bad I'm an old guy and can't climb anymore. I'd have to hire someone to put them up.
