Ok so no cardboard, then. Thanks so much! - Also, ordered a bunch of leds, so am thinking of Jury-rigging a non-synced heart with plexiglass and doing a glowing eye/hair effect. How did your head mounting work? Were those dowels or plastic or what?
Oh my goodness! That’s gonna be a pretty stellar thing to see, if you can get it to cooperate!
As for the head, yeah – they’re clear acrylic dowels. You can find ‘em in packs online! I can’t remember the exact diameter I used, but I wanna say they were each about a quarter of an inch thick.
The head itself, as you could probably tell, is based on a hollow styrofoam sphere, but I coated it in resin to keep it nice & sturdy before painting it and giving it a coat of matte finish clear spraypaint.
