A couple of weeks ago, I did a neon workshop at Berlin Glas e.V. with the great people behind neonworkshops.com. Aside from having our initials now permanently lighting up our home, I got to learn everything involved in the process of creating neon lights.
You get to learn how to bend and connect the glass tubes, how the gas is used to create the different colours, and how to wire everything up. I can recommend anyone interested in lighting related projects and neon to give it a try.
