Here is what I am building:
Here is my problem, if you have looked at the webpage above I am trying to figure out how to mold or construct a translucent bubble that fills the gaps that are between the white window slats. The 4th picture down shows how I want it to look. I can put plastic sheeting inside and blow air into the cavity. What I need is something to paint on or spray on that will end up being about 3/16" to a 1/4" thick. I could use resin but it runs off before it cures and is too thin. I don't care to be able to see clearly thru it just that it would let in a little defused light. If there was some way to make a resin that was a thicker that would stay in place till it cured. I can put on several coats if I need to to get the thickness. Any ideas ?
I have been using this chair that I molded to fit my body for over 10 years. (No comments about how wide it is, lol). I am a commercial artist (retired) and spent many 16 hour days working on my computer system doing art for clients.
Additional information is below as to how I made the chair. I had a lot of fun showing this computer system off and the Spaceship that was my office. If you wish you can see pictures at:
I set down in a dirt pile and formed the shape around me, until I was in the position that I wanted. We then covered the hole with a sheet of plastic. We used a wheel borrow to mix resin and soak fiberglass cloth. We laid the cloth into the hole on top of the plastic, then another layer of plastic.
I set back in the hole on top of the whole mess till it had cured enough to hold it's shape. (Yes, it got very hot and the vapors came thru the plastic, I was ready to get up.) Once the fiberglass shell was out of the hole and cleaned up I reinforced the back, attached an old office chair base so it would turn. Next I used Bondo to smooth and finish the inside. Then painted it black.
