good point!I never used that vine before. But, it does look like it would be hard to clean if poop gets on it.
hmmmm, interesting....I suppose my first question would be toxicity of the stuff. Can you bend it or does it crack? I like the idea since he needs smaller diameter and definitely something that is not smooth. I find the ExoTerra Jungle vine to be the best but trying to find the best deal since I want about 20' of it. Have a photo?I have been making fake vines out of nylon rope and this plastic dip stuff used for coating tool handles. You can buy it at Home Depot in the paint section. I take the coated rope and roll it in sand after it has had about 10 minutes to set up. Seems to work pretty well, but have only been using it for a couple weeks now.
It is messy. You have to let it hang to dry, but it doesn't really drip. If you lay it on a table when it is wet, it will stick to the table.Heika,
How messy does that stuff get? Do you have to hang the rope on something and let it drip on the ground? Or do you just lay it on a table once it is dipped?
what sort of sculpting do you do? Do you have a website with pics? Always fun to see what our "cyber" friends do when not in cyber spaceArmature wire is what I use for sculpting in clay.
that's a good idea, may help with general grip of "branch" too.Probably to make the plastic dip stuff stick better, you might want to take a thick peice of armature wire and wrap a smaller thickness one around it in coils.
Howdy,...the soaker hose...
