While I patiently waited for my order to arrive, it became apparently clear that I had neglected to order any "connecters" which just about every EL Wire Instructable, or other info guide covers how to attach those, but not wire EL wire to El wire. It wasn't until I delved further (almost the last step) into Pyrotect's EL Wire Instructable, that I found out it was even possible to solder both different colors, and different sizes together.
I didn't particularly like the method he used, so after reading about a few more techniques I collected the info and comprised it into my own.
Here it is.
Step 1: Materials and Parts
- Here are the materials you'll need:
- Soldering Iron + Solder
- Wire Stripper
- Heat Shrink Tubing (I used 1/4 inch)
- X-Acto Knife
- Electrical Tape (optional)
- Lighter (semi-optional)
- Kleenex (semi-optional)
