 Post subject: bubbled tube
PostPosted: 25.02.2003 04:52 
would it be possible to find two big acrylic or plastic tubes, or even sheets that you could bend around and seal, having only about an inch or so filled with water so you could have something iside it dry? such as a fake severed head?

the idea popped in my head while playing the sims on ps2. i'm supposing you could use one of those r2-d2 style trashcans for the bottom, and spraypaint it. but having water in it would be difficult because it might mess up the plastic head and if you had makeup on it, ect... but then again if it was in the water you could make the hair move around with bubbles. either which way, could that silicone sealant work on thin plastic?

It depends on the amount of water and how much pressure it will be giving aginst the walls. There are some tougher glues for acrylics than silicone and perhaps they would be better with round shapes... btw. the idea is great. :)

thanks :-D. i was thinking that i would instead of putting two pieces of acrylic, just one.. and have the head in with the water so that the hair on it can flow. Also, i was thinking that if i broke open a UV marker and let that drain into the water, and had a blacklight over it, the water would literally glow. do you think if i found a piece of glass it would be able to be sanded as the acrylic did in your Cryo mod? if not, where could i find such a piece of acrylic thats about a foot inter-diameter, round? and about 1-2 feet tall?

Glass can be sanded too I think. Test to some smaller piece first though :)

Just go to the nearest supermarket etc. and look for food containers that might work in this manner. For example they may sell pasta in this kind of round tubes. Just look around. :)
