    Hi.

    Just a thought going through my head ......

    you know the material of the big wavy arms and legs blow up men??? what sort of material are they made of ???

    i am thinking of looking for a similar sort of fabric for a little project id like to try out ..... in a orangey sort of print ....

    just wondering what it is/where i could get it ???

    might head to lincraft? spotlight?

    just needs to be light and flexible i guess, but also need to able to shine light through it ...

    or i guess a place that printed them tear drop signs might be suitable?

    cheers for any assistance.

    Try sail cloth, I heard a few guys on the forums talking about using it for props and such.


    I'd like to find the special tinsel they make the wire frame figures out the last few years, cannot find a real source for that. Personally need to make an Oscar the Grouch to go along with Elmo, Big Bird and Cookie Monster.
