Creating backlight for a canvas banner?

Posted by beth_in_bend (My Page) on

I have a nylon banner that measures 2'x8' and I would like to build a light box to backlight it. I've seen this done for headboards, etc, using rope light, but I'm worried about any heat getting too close to the nylon. Also, it would have to be something I can plug into an outlet, not hardwired. Any sugggestions on how to do this?

Look at LED ropes or maybe LED Christmas tree lights. The trick would be in the detail used to conceal the lights or frame the banner.
