My attempts at some Iceman slides

Recommended Posts

How did you make them? Hot glue? And did you use paint to add the blue highlights to the first slide? Great job by the way.

Thank you very much! Yes hot glue for most of it. For the blue and white colors I made a first layer out of clear plastic sheets that I got from Hobby Lobby and used that as a base to lay the glue. Once I got that first layer done, I went inside and painted with blue or white paint.  I then just started adding layers of glue until the glue diluted the color enough to my liking.  All together it took about an hour each.

Thanks for the insight. Been wanting to make one for myself for my Jim Lee X-Men #1 display. Haven't had the courage to start it yet lol

I was same way and just got bored one day to try it.  I included some photos for you of some in progress shots where you can see the plastic sheets I used as base walls and I also forgot to mention that you can simply use the actual glue sticks as a frame. Just quickly super glue them together in a rough shape you want, then add the plastic sheet walls then start gluing.  It all goes very fast.

I was for awhile. But finally just got bored and went to hobby lobby. It only cost maybe 10 bucks for the glue paint and supplies. And if you don't like it, just throw it away.
