hi my problem is the following! i cut out a hole in my mouse to do a cryo mouse with a lego guy inside! but the problem i have is to bend it to the shape of the hole because the hole is curved (because the mouse is curved)!
if someone could help me it would be nice, answering here or on my mail!
thanks a lot

Didnt exacty get the guestion, but if you'r asking how to get the plexi-glass in to the same shape as the mouse is, i would suggest a hot air blower(dunno if thats what its called in english, tough) to slowly warm warm the plexi and gently try to bend it to the same kind of curves that your mouse has...

You cold try to bend it in your hands without the mouse approx to the right shape (that's not too accurate, tough) or first put some heat on the plexi, before you put it on the mouse and start bending (could be difficunt to get it to work because the plexi hardens pretty qiuckly), or if you have experiense on fiber-glass you could make a mold from the mouse and then warm the plexi without the fear of melting it (i would use this personally)...

Hope that these were of some help...
