Our medium-gray closed-cell foam comes in 14-1/8" x 3-3/4" x 1/4" thick slices with self-adhesive backing. You get two slabs, the better to pad something with.
New Hope For The Messy
Go ahead, get sloppy. Cleanup is a snap with our white plastic hairdressers' cape, 71" x 52" with a hole for your head; or the general-purpose white plastic dropcloth which measures 5-feet square, with no hole for your head or anything else. Both are about the thickness of a standard trash bag. Great for the classroom, art projects, touching up around the house, hairstyling and home-based DIY buzz cuts.
See psychedelic patterns the safe way! Press your hand on this 6" x 6" sheet of liquid crystal and leave a print of swirling colors that, like the mood ring of yore, you can use as a sign of your mood. The pattern will blend and fade in seconds as the crystals react to temperature. Tiny liquid crystals inside the film-like material react to heat, 25-30°C (77-86°F) by changing colors. As science, it demonstrates the way liquid crystal displays work. And you can cut it into pieces to incorporate into a science project. Or just leave it out for guests to play with when the party turns boring.
Surplus - with a silver lining! We have almost half a hundred rolls of 18-1/2" wide mylar film, the shiny side printed with a variety of balloon designs - happy birthday, happy retirement, happy other things - and a matte silver finish on the other (picture the two sides of aluminum foil). We'll send you a roll of 20 ft. Lots of craft-project potential. Start with a shiny birthday kite. Move onto hand-made hair scrunchies. Jim suggests wrapping yourself in it if your car stalls in the Arctic. Philip, always the adventurer, is considering a do-it-yourself dirigible.
