I figure this is a good thread to bump with a rope light question. I've just installed blue 3/8" incandescent rope light by National Specialty behind my soffit trim and it looks really greeenish to me. If I were being generous I'd call it aqua but man, it's almost greener than that.
So my question is this, I just put it up quick to test it, and it's currently illuminating an unpainted drywall ceiling. To what degree will my choice of ceiling color (which hasn't been nailed down yet) affect the glow from the rope light? I'm hoping for the effect seen in a lot of the star ceilings around here where you have a dark blue perimeter around a night sky (but I was going to do a luminescent painted star mural, which wants a lighter colored ceiling so as to not be visible during the day.)
