Our pal Jeri has a few more installments of her videos exploring making your own EL wire and displays. In the first vid above, she shows how she twisted the enameled and bare wires to create the EL wire detailed in her previous vid. In the second video above, she shows how she used some etched junk circuit board and Luxprint EL ink to create a crude (but workable) electroluminescent “display.”

(And yes, she’s aware of her pixel pimple. Please don’t bring it up. Digital acne is a very embarrassing subject.)
