Re: 15' wall made of polystyrene / styrofoam?

Sharke, I am interested to see what you come up with. Keep posting once you start your build. I like the idea, just not the material. Another thing you may consider is to not make the wall out of solid blocks and only apply the facade to a base material. Those solid blocks are huge cost a lot. I do...

Re: 15' wall made of polystyrene / styrofoam?

Styrofoam comes in many forms. We are all acquainted with the one that breaks into millions of tiny balls. (That's great if you want to fill a bean bag chair.) There are other kinds. Such as the ones used as pontoons. I would do some research and ask some real experts. You may be on to something. L...

Remember, gust can top 60 mph. holes and slots sound great, but the sail you're making there will catch a lot of wind. I'd say you'll need/want diagonal pracing, tension and compression if it's only on one side.

Re: Time to phase out glitter

This year I saw people sprayed head-to-toe with some kind of glitter paint. It looked more like a prismatic color shifting auto paint from a distance. Kind of a green gold shift. They said some camp was painting people & it wasn't supposed to be moopy. I can't speak to that but it looked pretty ...
