    Well, thanks to Shell and her Coro snowpeople here , I decided that the Santa i made a few years ago out of MDF, needed to be remade onto corro. Using Shell's advice, and signwriters vinyl, I spent some time rebuilding him and adding 7 x 2801 pixels inside.

    Here is some photos to show how i did it.

    Here is a video showing him in action using the test sequence on the Pixad8

    yeah Donny, I used Signwriters Vinyl for all of the colours.

    I have previously used paint and it just doesnt last as it doesnt bite into the corro. Well, not the type of paint i used.

    Cool, thanks! I actually thought about getting vinyl wraps. The kind folks are doing on cars and such. Thanks Matt for the info!
