  1. Becky, I am trying to make a tiara based on the neopixel tiara project for my 5-year-old grandaughter. I decided to start with an actual tiara and place the neopixels in the spaces. I could not find a plastic tiara that is suitable, so I got a metal one. The problem is that it’s conductive, so I have to insulate the circuit from the tiara and the tiara from my grandaughter.

    My first attempt was some clear package sealing tape stuck to the inside of the tiara and another piece behind the circuit. That works, but the tape loses it’s stick and the repairs are kind of ugly.

    I opened up a piece of heat shrink tubing, and am considering making holes in it for the neopixels to shine through, and wrapping it around the circuit for insulation. I guess I would glue it to the tiara.

    Do you have any suggestions?

    Thanks for your help, as always.
