Just curious. You said to use a plastic stirrer, do you think that the plastic from the clear plastic sprue of a kit model will work just as good. Such as were you would separate the windshield of a car model, Or is that a harder, more brittle plastic?

Here's an example of what I'm talking about just incase you or anyone else isn't sure what I'm talking about.

I think that should work. The hardness and transparency should be pretty similar, so I don't see why it wouldn't. You might need to use a different method to cut the sprues, though.
