Charcoal on skin?

I I have hard that charcoal has the ability to soak up toxins and germs. Would it be bad to use this on skin as a mask? Maybe grind up NATURAL charcoal and then add a little water to make a paste and if necesary add thickeners to make kind of a covering for skin for health?

Animatronic "Skin"

Hello, I am making an animatronic tail, similar to the one pictured below and I am not sure how to go about covering it so I can put the fur on. I am thinking that some type of rubber tubing (and what kind of tubing) or nylon/mesh stretchy fabric, but I am worried about glue seeping through the fabric and onto the moving parts. What do people use for this stage of their project? Help!!!

Custom Refrigerator Skin

I wanted to figure out how to create a skin for large items such as refrigerators, washing machines,  etc.   I am having trouble conceptualizing the necessary steps to completely hide cosmetic blemishes on large machines and appliances.  Would creating a skin be a good solution?  I am guessing there is a more elegant way than simply placing a large image printout underneath glass?  Also FYI, some of the appliances are completely brand new so I would ideally want a "top layer" solution as opposed to a "painting" solution. Nice to have features: 1.  weather proof 2.  Can be easily swapped with new design

safe skin dyes

What is the safest way to dye your skin a different color (temporarily or permanently) without poisoning yourself, and/or getting sick from it? I've stained my fingers with slightly-poisonous malachite, but never got sick from it. in fact, my entire left arm got covered in it, and I felt fine. I never inhaled any, seeing as that's where it's mostly poisonous. so, basically, I just need to know what compounds are safe to apply to skin, and not get poisoned. I need the following 2 colors: Green and Black.

how to remove blackheads by herbal ways?

As years passed by, I've noticed that I now have some blackheads & whiteheads in some area of my nose, and so I went to a derm clinic and have some facial treatment, but after few weeks, it still came back. I'm thinking of going back to dermclinic but it's too expensive, that's why I want to know if there's another way of removing it that wont cost that much, and perhaps an herbal way i'd prefer.

"Skinning" 123D cardboard model

Hey fellow Authors, i've been working on the following model for my business, strictly ornamental. I've come this far and don't know how to continue without destroying the time and money already invested. My goal is to cover it with some material and make it look like a statue. Maintaining still a polygonal feel to it. I want to paint it glossy red. I've thought about using fiberglass, plaster, paper (as found in a tutorial in the internet), Cover it with a pepakura mesh. But i'm still not sure how to proceed. I fear fiberglass to be too messy and complicated, plaster could ruin the cardboard dampening it, paper makes it look like a cheap piñata, pepakura would requiere a lot of trial and error to get the pieces to match the "skeleton" and problematic at the end to give it the glossy and professional feeling im looking for. Any ideas guys??   Sorry for the resolution on the first image, I didn't have my lap with me at the time of this post.

A million ways to skin a cat.

A Million Ways to Skin a Cat. I have to say that one of my favorite places in the web is https://www.instructables.com. Waking up to that email on thursday mornings, the https://www.instructables.com news letter makes me happy im such a geek. I love to read the peoples reviews and each individual point of view... those comments sometimes really get me going....  I have done a few DIY form this site but I guess I am not a forum/comment guy.  (to be fair this is my first post on a forum since 2008) And now... to the point .  I invite https://www.instructables.com to help us geeks challenge each other while improving the site with a simple new feature. A Million Ways to Skin a Cat Basically get from "step a" to "step b" you an follow different approaches.   A step or a process in an "instructable" may be improved or explained in any other way. This feature  enables users to set there creations free and make all the community share there ways and get to the optimization of projects.    Think of the search for a new project starting from a proces you already know.  For example: using a DREMEL tool on wood.  You could se many instructables containing this keywords, but what if you could see the process of carving wood, explained in detail on many ways, by many users. The user will share his method, and experience or simply pitch in with some new info or detail he might have encounter or needed during the process.  On the GUI I imagine below the next step lower right button a button that says something like "MORE" or "A.A. (another approach"). This button coul also link to another instructable that has a detail guide on how to do the process at hand.  Instructables will start to branch out and interconnect to form an organic and hands on detail database.   Any ways thats my humble idea. I wish it helps this site to grow and keep helping people.  P.S. Maybe you have another way, who knows if out there are one million more ways...

How could I secure multiple 2-liter bottles for use as emergency flotation for a homemade skin-on-frame kayak? Answered

     I'm working on a Yostwerks-design skin-on-frame kayak, and have seen pictures of inflatable bags that fit in bow and stern for emergency flotation - in case you're swamped, they'll help keep your water-filled boat on the surface.      Part of this project is the joy of spending time making something that I will enjoy.      Part of this project is about not spending a lot of money - I could go out and buy a kayak, but would need several hundred dollars all at once to do so.  I can afford to buy individual components: a sheet of plywood, or a plank, or fabric, so can work little by little on building my own.      The specialized flotation bags, while nice, would be an added expense - I'm assuming on the spendy side.  But I drink cheap diet soda, and believe I could reuse the bottles as cheap (essentially free to me, since this would otherwise be trash) flotation.  It would take lots of these to float a kayak plus any camping gear I might put in it - about 25, I've figured out.      What I can't figure out, though, is how to have 25 empty bottles split between the bow and stern, filling the awkward pointy kayak spaces, and not rolling all around or falling out if I capsize.      So what do you think?  How would you go about this?  Please let me know what you think.  Thanks!

The use of soft circuits in robotics

Sheets of touch sensitive material seem perfect for giving robots a "skin" of sorts. This could easily allow for something along the lines of a robot pet that can tell when it is being petted. It would also be useful for robot grippers, to allow the robot to hold on without applying too much force. With a layer of durable plastic between the circuit and the cloth, the robot could be made water resistant. Not really sure where else to take this, but I think touch sensitive, water proof skin (and also whiskers) would go a long way to making better robot dogs and cats, and probably other kinds of robots.

Put the robot on your browser.

So yesterday when I had the usual Firefox Google page open up there was a little thing at the bottom that advertised an add-on called Personas. I checked it out and it turns out it has a lot of different "skins" for Firefox that you can interchange without restarting your browser. So, when I saw that you could make your own skins I thought of one thing, an Instructables persona, and here it is. For those who think that the amount of orange on each page of Instructables is not enough for their daily lives.The file for the footer is 3000x100 pixels. The file for the headers is 3000x200 pixels which is required for the headers and footers. The pictures below are just showing what the right sides of the different headers look like. The links below lead to the original files for the headers and footers so you can make them a part of your browser, just follow the instructions here, go to "Do I have to add my Persona to the public gallery?". Just download the original pics from these pages.Robot Header copyRobot Header 1 copyRobot Header 2 copyRobot Header 3 copyFooter it is just the darker orange color on the headerUPDATE:The persona for the first one is finally available on Personas

Removing Gorilla Glue From Skin Answered

   Has anyone found a way of removing the brown 'Original' Gorilla Glue from skin.  Earlier today I picked something up by the wrong side which I'd just coated in the stuff.  I've just spent 20 minutes washing and scrubbing my hands as per their FAQs and have just about lost the stuff, but has anyone come up with a miracle way of removing it?

Christmas Spirit -O-Meter (Bah humbug meter)

I'm a school teacher and every year we have a door decorating competition...and we always lose.  Last year, I tried working on an interactive door display that shows the users holiday/Christmas spirit level, ranging from jolly to bah humbug.  My idea was the user would put one or both hands on a metal plate(s) and lights would show up showing their level of holiday spirit.  Essentially, it's a skin conductivity meter that uses a row of led lights indicating the amount of resistance/conductivity. Does anyone have plans available or can direct me to a site where I can find them.  Preferably nothing too elaborate where I can just use a breadboard and electronic parts from Radio Shack.
