Cut Blinkytape into custom length


How exactly would I go about cutting blinkytape to make each led distance longer/shorter? I know some soldering would likely be involved, but I’ve never soldered before. Do I just cut on the dotted line then solder the wires onto blinkytape? What kind of wire would I need? Would it still work with pattern paint if I cut each led? Thank you very much for your help!


  • Yes, you can cut between any of the LEDs, down the dotted line. Patternpaint will work just the same as before, and you can use any smallish wire (I think 18-24AWG should be ok). We have a tutorial for a similar process here (using a totally optional led repair shim):

    The main thing to look out for is that the wire connections can be a little fragile, so it's best if you can mount the pieces to something more sturdy.
