7. 24" x 24"x1/16" plexiglass
1. Cut square in tube about 18x20 (size is up to you, smaller = more stable)
2. Paint tube and lids black ( you can try leaving the inside white to reflect light)
3, Stuff a pillow in the body of the alien.
4. Position the head with tape or a balloon or a smaller pillow. ( I used a balloon)
5. Roll the plexiglass and slide into the tube (store in a warm area for a couple days and the plastic will relax against the wall of
6.slide alien into tube.
Add lighting and fog for effect.
I taped my tube to a couple of 2x4's to keep it from rolling left or right.
This project works well both laying down and standing up.
