Creating El Wire Clothing
To get your El Wire clothing glowing, you’ll have to hand sew the wire, prior to that you’ll have to install the grommets. Grommet is a ring that is used to reinforce holes in any type of fabric. Run the wire through the grommet that can also be used to make unique circular designs on your fabric. Make sure to test your binding and use your wire through it. The wire needs a high voltage around 100 volts, for it to glow brightly. Also, because the wire needs an AC power system, make sure you leave a pocket empty to sew a battery pack and inverter. An inverter is a device that converts direct current (DC) to AC power. The best place to sew the inverter and battery is where your El Wire clothing hangs freely. This prevents the El Wire clothing from forming a bulge. A zipper can also be used to keep the batteries and inverters in place. Generally, when you dance at a night club on a fun night out, the batteries and inverter will move if not sealed properly. This could ruin your El Wire clothing experience, so make sure it is in the right spot and sealed properly. You don’t want to be stuck fixing your outfit all night. If you want to use more color strands in your El Wire clothing, you will also need a sequencer. This is a proper circuit board that gives supplies power to every strand of wire individually and makes the wire glow in a pattern.
As cool and as easy it is to install and use, El Wire clothing needs proper care and attention. The El Wire is permanently fixed to the clothing, so while washing your clothes you need to be super careful. Do not wash it in a washing machine that is the perfect way of running your El wire clothing, it might ruin the rest of the clothes in the machine as well, furthermore if the wire tears up, it will damage your washing machine. El wire clothing is water proof, but take the batteries, inverter and sequencer out before cleaning. Make sure you hand wash clothing equipped with the El Wire, and hang them to dry. Batteries and inverters are safe but they can give you a little shock if they are not sealed properly and are exposed to water.
