    Shell,
    I used black coro for the back and the dividers between the pixels. Basically I stole the design from holiday coro and just made my own template the size I wanted.
    Because they don't ship to Aus, I don't feel as guilty about borrowing the design. :p

    Here's one I haven't glued together yet.

    One in each segment, for a total of 16 modules per cane. Makes sequencing a lot easier as it divides by 4.

    44" high, 4.5" wide cane, 9" radius on curve for 18" total width.
    Made the side walls 3" high. This seems to be plenty to disperse the color evenly.

    Next project is the mini trees I think. Made one sample that I'll post later to get opinions as I'm not sure I like the effect.

    Cheers,
    Rowan

    I made 2 1.8m core candy canes with another 2 to build, but I'm gonna steal this idea with the sections. Maybe 4 small ones

    Looking great, looks like candy canes are the rage this year, but they are a great effect.
