I’m just learning. I’m trying to add different patterns.
Question – how do you take pictures of your LED projects that show of their colors better?

I’m sure they will look FABulous with your new sparkle mankini, David :wink:

Looks nice. For pics, lower the brightness. Mine below are at 25 of 255 I think…

Lower the brightness until you think it’s far too dim. Then use nice long exposures. These look wicked cool btw! Where did you hide the batteries etc?

the handle crossbar is 3/4" thinwall PVC. I used a 14500, 2000 mAh battery which fits in one side (with a rocker switch on the end) and the trinket is on the other side, with the mode selector button and usb jack on the end. The spinning loop is reinforced vinyl hose with a twisted coat hanger wire inside to strengthen it.
