K'nex Instructable Background Hint Answered

Have you had trouble making a good k'nex instructable because of the background? Use poster-board to make a good, monochromatic background which can make seeing details easier.

The problem with rugs is that sometimes the 'hairs' may cause some bad light reflection or get in some parts of the gun or hid them.

If your hair is a dark color then it isn't really a problem.

The hairs in my carpet don't really bother me, I guess I could always vacuum them off.

It's basically the same thing as poster-board but smaller. Still poster-board is better for larger guns.

Or just lay your gun down on the floor.

I would if I could but I don't actually have anything white. I just decided I'll go for some good lighting using the pool table light. It makes white connectors glare but otherwise it's good enough. Plus I could always try going for a green screen effect and putting my gun in a scene of a movie or something XD.
