Does anyone have any weird effects for use in church and school christmas caraol nights ?

 

I'm think of placing heaps of 12volt globes around controlled off a flickering flame modual so that it looks like lots of candles burning. Does anyone have some cheap ideas to get a good effect and create mood at chirstmas ?

 

thanks for any ideas.

You can buy or make flash effects which are generally small diochroic coloured birdie (12volt round lamps often found as downlighters in kitchens) lamps shining up to a thin piece of fire retarded white material which is flapping in the wind of a fan. You can make them easily if you are into electrical wiring and spec'ing fans and lamps etc or you can buy them from various places. Some are crap and some look reallly decent. Indoor flame effects without the fire hazard.

 

Other than that, you can buy candle lamps that flicker. They can be had from many hardware shops and plug into existing lamp holders. They don't give off the same light as a church candle but they do look decent enough..
