Can I Cut EL Panels?

When working with EL Panels, it's important to know how the panel works before making any cuts. This ensures a steady frequency throughout the panel, and keeps an nice even glow throughout as well. A typical EL Panel will have a bus bar that extends around the outside of the panel. This essentially separates the positive and negative frequencies from touching. From the inverter, a high frequency is produced which enters the panel and extends around the outside.
