Looking at putting LED's under covering.

Hello All, ive ordered some LED strips from hobbyking and am thinking of putting them in the frame of a PA addiction under some white solarfilm. Would the LED's shine through the covering fine? Is there a better covering to use for getting a good effect? This will be my first night set up so any tips would be cool.

Thanks

White is too opaque. Use a coloured transparent covering to match the colours of the LED strips you have ordered.

If you use Solite rather than Solarfilm, they'll shine through very well and will also be nicely diffused instead of bright points.
