When working with polystyrene, it is really important to have a hot wire cutter, as it makes the whole process about a hundred times faster and easier.
To buy a variable temperature hot wire cutter is around £700.
To rent one is looking at £70/week,
To make one costs the better part of £20, maybe a little more if you have nothing.
I guess this is a bit of an odd one.
For a while now I have wanted to tan a hide, more to see if I can, than for any other reason.
Thanks for a friend of mine that stalks deer, I got the opportunity to in November, 2016.
The video is below, and the hide was actually used in an installation we did that Christmas.
