I held each up into the sunlight the best I could to show you natural backlighting:
I then had to make a generic back light box, so I cut a hole just slightly smaller than my smallest samples and quickly lined with white printer paper:
I then cut a slot about 4" down on the side of the box to slide my RGB LED light strips through:
LUM-33 under various lights:
I didn't take any pictures of this, but I could get the samples within about 1.5" of the RGB LED lighting without hotspotting, regardless of color. However, the light dissipation was not that great and you would need to orient many strips of lighting fairly close together to get a nice, even look. I'm sure if you used Melamine or dry erase board for the substrate you could get even better results. I used a 5050 RGB LED light strip, FYI.
If you would like me to run any other tests, just let me know.
