What happens if you twinkle a twinkling snowflake?

I have a 42 inch snowflake that I mount in my display and all year I have been programming sequences where I applied a twinkling effect to it. Now I just took it down from the attic and the box reads twinkling snowflake. What happens if you apply a twinkling effect to a twinkling snowflake? If I plug it in to an outlet it seems to take a few seconds before it starts twinkling. Maybe the twinkling from the LOR hardware will be fast enough to override the inherent slow twinkle on the snowflake?

Is it Icans for lights? If so look for lights with a red tip and change thos lights to a regular bulb. The red tip means it is a twinkle bulb.

Dont worry about it. I have the same one from Target. The only time I catch it twinkling is when its on 100%. Most of my sequences its ramping, shimmering and only on for a second. Its been up and running for 10days with no problems. To me it works very well. What I did go ahead and do was remove the twinkling effect for that from my sequences (which was minimal). Really adds a nice touch!

Usually it won't start "twinkling" until the bulbs have "warmed up" which usually takes between 5 - 10 seconds...at least on the twinkling lights I have...

I heard if you twinkle a twinkleing snowflake, the universe as we know it will implode uppon its self. Its like feeding a Magui after midnight.

If it has a transformer and / or IC inside it - it may not work, but generally I agree - it should be fine.
