Part 2 is finished, I just gotta find the time to crop all the photos and assemble it into a post. That actually takes up nearly as much time as the actual testing!

I'm no light scientist, but ROY-G-BIV is my theory to Part 4. In Test 1 and 3, monochromed images, Brightest to darkest would be Purple, Blue, and then red.
Purple and blue have a higher frequency, (Requires more voltage)
See chart: http://www.oksolar.com/led/led_color_chart.htm
Take note of "Backlighting Surfaces Using LEDs"
Kinda like my old case, where it was bright lit Blue.
Changed it all to red, and it was much darker.
That makes sense a lot of sense. Thanks for linking that! I'll add it to the post so others can see

I've looked at EL tape before. I've got two issues with it, the first being that it requires a converter so it doesn't really save space over LEDS and the second is that they are nowhere near as bright. They're great for creating a nice glow, but to get a really bright shine, they don't work too well. If you took pictures with EL tape under studio lighting for example, you actually wouldn't see any difference since they aren't bright enough to have an impact.
Also, if you take a look at Cyberdruid video with EL tape, you actually need quite some distance between the acrylic and the tape itself to get a good glow, so it wouldn't work too well in this case.
Thanks for the suggestion though! Keep them coming
