|"Let's Go Anywhere." Neon sign by Sarah Foelske, personal project|
To create different colors, neon artists can parlay the two base colors into over 80 different colors by using glass tubes that are coated in fluorescent powders. For instance, blue glowing argon gas in a yellow tube, emits a green light.
To shape the tubes, artists use a glass blowing technique.
Using transparent clips, they mount the sign onto a black or clear plexiglass backing. Finally, they connect the protruding electrode wires to a neon transformer. A neon transformer converts the standard 110 volt current, from our normal wall outlets, into high voltage current (3k to 15k volts) needed to power a neon sign. Sound complicated? Source
