Thinner is better. The scanner has a very limited focus range, so I think foam core material may be too thick. The material I used was essentially black card stock....a heavy paper. I'd go with the poster paper!
Hey, thanks for the comments. I made these with the instructable motif as a proof of principle. If anyone wants one of these "limited edition" coins, just instructable-mail me your address. One will easily fit into an envelope and I'll take care of the minimal postage...even overseas (places other than Texas). I have about 20 left (the rest were randomly dropped around Manhattan on a visit there). If they are popular, I can always make another round! Cheers!
Sorry, I see that the sculpture is a biorock installation...nice!
Would the transplants survive better with a biorock installation? From what I understand, it would mean putting a low voltage current through the rebar.
Sure, they should be just as light tight as a regular pack. Since they are out of the factory foil package, I'd store the pack in a heavy duty quart freezer ziplock bag. This will protect it from dust, moisture and mechanical damage. If you could find them in black...all the better 8-)

If someone wants them for this conversion or a conversation piece...fine. However, Even under ideal storage conditions, those film packs are long dead for their original purpose. They will not produce an image.
Ahhh, the old Pleaser! Probably has not pleased anyone in quite a while! I don't think that you could really convert a Pleaser to pack film. It was an integral type instant camera, not a peel apart instant camera. I've converted a Kodak instant camera to a cut film camera, but the results were not that great and was not worth the effort. Better to have it as a decorative object or doorstop 8-)
