    My First MegaTree

    Thanks. Did you wire the strips from the bottom of the tree? I made some meteors and used Vixen as well, but effects like meteor moved from the bottom of the meteors up. I assumed this was because pixel 1 was at the top of my meteors, whereas I think the effect assumed pixel one was at the...

    Source of Coro in Sydney?

    Hi all, the lights are up, and was wondering if I have time for a coro project... Does anyone know a good source of coro around Sydney? I've seen it in Bunnings, but I've also seen others mention sign writing places. Any recommendations are appreciated. Grant

    Silicone Sealant

    I second the Parfix product from Bunnings - I've not had any problems with it, and it's pretty cheap.
