At one point or another we've all had to make that little prop to finish a character off, or to add that final touch to an adventure. Below are some guides on how to construct props, both small and large.
- Polyethene foam (plastazote etc.) can be cut or welded with a hot wire. One to two amperes through 0.375mm constantan wire (4.2 Ohm/m) seems to work well: available as "Resistance Wire" from Maplin (£5 for 50m) or by asking Thomas nicely (or from a dead heater?). Car batter charger handy as power source.
