I’m looking at something like this with 40 balls
Have you tried this yet? I have a few left over pixel's I want to try with, once I can find some ball's.
Not the exact ones I use but... https://www.indiamart.com/proddetai...cover-ws2811-led-pixel-light-12430693991.html "milk" is a word often used to describe frosted ...
Not yet I have the balls just getting a order together for a heap of lights
I used the led modules like the ones @MD389 used. Best thing is they fit to existing screw holes. But I guess if you have leftover other pixels they'll work too, you just might have more obvious "hot spots".
I have noticed that my balls have gone a bit orangey/brown after 6+ months in the sun, but doesn't effect brightness or colour at night.
Picked up some reject shop solar balls today. Tried one and two pixels. Think I’ll stick with one pixel as will hide pixel easier and still looks good.
Thinking of using a $2 eBay pixel tester and simple 240-12v transformer and use in back garden thru out the year and will use at Xmas in display.

Just make sure you measure the no-load voltage on the power supply to make sure it's not significantly higher than 12V.
they're still around I just cleaned out Robina and Nerang got 31 of them all up
I made up a bunch of pixel balls today using the TRS (The Reject Shop) $2 solar balls.
has anyone couple spare of these ? I'm trying to do an outline of the driveway with them and I think I'm going to be about 2 short , although I'll take more if if you have them for spares , willing to paying postage etc
Worst case I can probably bring a few to the Sydney mini if you dont find a better option, but I'm not willing to post them.
where are you at Daryl ? I'm actually on the border nsw and qld
