My night with rigid acrylic

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Five hours later.... Definitely an art form in and of itself. Still have to polish and clean up a little but wanted to share. Learned a lot for my first night of the WC build. Getting there....

I'm not sure about this tubing yet. It appears as if it'll stain rather easily. It may not stain at all, of course.
I just don't know enough about it. I watched the videos. I still can't imagine how difficult it will turn out to be just to get it to the proper final shapes.
I know that if I go with this stuff in about a year, I'll know a lot more about it then.
I'm already pretty sure clear tubing will be my very last choice. Colored tubing and plain water with silver or some other biocide and not a drop of dye.
I'm also hoping some sexy fittings will be developed over the coming months. It all looks like a high school science project, as is.
It can't help but either get better, or just fade away.
That's a good start BTW. Keep up the good work.
Next summer you can teach us all how to do it right.
