Posted:Hmmm... EL wire might just work. I have also seen some glow fabric before but it was expensive. I'm not sure if either one of those would hold up for more than a few good cracks.

Posted:You could make one out of UV reactive fabric or dip a whip in UV reactive dye and use it under a UV lamp. Other than that I don't think much will survive the whipping action.

Posted:My brother wove one himself out of UV reactive cord. Cracks real nice too. An easy UV reactive dip is Tide or any laundry detergent. Try it smile

Posted:Well remember that it is laundry detergent so it doesn't really "dye" it. It sort of comes out in the wash biggrin. Dip it and wring out the excess, it should work. wink

The pessimist fears this is true.

Posted:EL wire wouldnt work.

The cracking would break the wire down the middle, thus stopping it from Glowing.
