One down, and pretty damn bright too!

lessons learned: for pads this small you really want/need a stencil. The only other way is to put a glob of paste over all the pads and then carefully scratch away the excess to leave four more or less uniform blobs, but this is not very reliable.

Going to laser-cut some stencils tomorrow :)

@s_ol would you share a photo of the stencil? I'd like to see how it's used.

@whtrbt Sure, I'll keep updating with how it goes :)
