Yep, you heard it right. I’ve got crabs. Well a crab, and it’s form. I was doing a glue up with some resin glue
and decided to put some of it into a form. The form is a crab, and not really a form. It’s a sand toy. You press it into wet sand like a cookie cutter, lift, and low and behold you have a crab that crumbles apart as you lift the plastic off. Yippie. I love the look of frustrated children as they throw a crumbled crab. LOL
I let Heidi press it into the form. My fingers are way to manicured for that crap. After allowing my little project to dry overnight, I removed the crab. It was still damp when I removed it, as well as flimsy. I don’t have pics of that, but this is the result after 4 days.
This thing is harder then a honeymooners you know what on a friday night. Nearly brittle to the point of glass. It also shrunk like a polar club swimmers you know what after a fridgid dip in the arctic.
I guess the cool thing is that it kept its shape. I’ve been toying with the idea of using sawdust and making sculptures in the same fashion. Hasn’t happened yet, but it will. It’s a good thing that the can didn’t say “will not shrink or crack” like most glues.
Anyhow, that’s all I have to say about that.
