Glue stick sculpture project question

by SJanosik on Sat May 30, 2020 3:15 pm

Hi - I'm wondering what thickness the acrylic is on the Glue Stick Sculpture project. Does it have to be 4 layers also or would two layers be possible to make it a little less expensive on the acrylic? Perhaps the 4 layers are to be sure the glue sticks stay in? https://learn.adafruit.com/glue-stick-archway

If anyone knows - thank you!
Can't wait to make,
Sandy

The prototype shown is made with 1/8" (3mm) acrylic sheet. 2 layers should work. Although you would probably need to glue or tape the pixels to the bottom layer instead of sandwiching them as shown here: https://learn.adafruit.com/glue-stick-a ... 3017517-11

It can also be made with ordinary corrugated cardboard as shown here: https://learn.adafruit.com/glue-stick-a ... ly-circuit
