The goal of this project was to create a unique stand for an Ipad Mini. I first thought of this project when i seen the ad photos of the Ipad being held in a persons hand! As I had a mini I looked for creative stands for it but unfortunately I couldn't find anything cool enough so decided to make my own.

Items required
  • Exacto Knife (Other cutting implement)
  • Duct tape
  • Cardboard
  • Measuring Jug
  • Smooth on Alja-Safe® for hand mold. (Available form http://www.smooth-on.com/ -us http://www.benam.co.uk - uk)
  • Smooth on Smooth cast 300 (Also available form http://www.smooth-on.com/ -us http://www.benam.co.uk - uk)
  • Water
  • Pint sized plastic cups or larger
  • Container to make mold in
  • Bucket for mixing
  • Hand blender or drill to mix
  • Wooden or plastic mixing rod
  • Sand paper

Step 1: The Ipad Dummy

The first step is to make a cardboard duplicate of the ipad to use during the molding process as I am sure nobody wished to ruin their Ipad. First i cut a piece of card board slightly smaller than the Ipad so  my mold would hold the ipad securely. I then covered it in duct tape so the cardboard would keep its shape while in the alginate. 
<p>This is great! I'm by no means a man who ever gives obscene gestures, but for some reason I find it a humorous thought to make a middle finger variant. Less stability, more &quot;Lol's.&quot;</p>
