    I'm about to order some pixels, but not sure which are the best to use?

    The flat back ones or the tube ones.

    Ordering ray wu, 5v.

    Sorry don't know the technical names for them.

    Try the pixel modules. 3 LEDs per module. They come with double sided tape on the back. That's what I'll be using and pretty sure that's what others usehttp://i01.i.aliimg.com/wsphoto/v0/920999809_1/promotion-20pcs-string-DC12V-WS2811-LED-full-color-pixel-module-IP68-0-72W.jpg_250x250.jpg

    I'm looking more for shapes.

    Ideally I want to be able to take them out if I decide to change the shapes.

    Or

    Either of these designs are what I'm looking at.

    The bullet ones are better if your going to push them through holes. They all have their strong points depending on your prop. Maybe some more info about how they are being mounted and how they will shine would help. The rectangles mentioned are great if they are going to backlight through the coro.

    I used the 2811 3led-modules (rectangle) last year on my coro-candles. I used silicon & hotglue to glue them down.

    I didnt much like the candles last year so this year I got some new corflute and made some candy-canes and pulled the modules out of old candles and reused them, easy to remove and now much happier with design :)
