How would you waterproof EL wire?

You could control two trees with one Arduino (an Escudo has 8 channels, so you could add a 4th strand--maybe yellow). And because you are weaving EL in & out, the tree would look equally good from the back as from the front. Finally I would leave some solid whites at the base (probably not EL). That's exactly what I would do if I had the frame.
