Working with new materials

Constructing the nectar pods, over steel rod base forms previously built by Adrian Jones, has been an adventure in working with new materials: a large roll of saran wrap from U-Haul; 3′ in diameter balloons from a party boutique inflated with Annette’s bicycle pump (with occasional bursting); fibreglass and resin from Competition Composites Inc., mixed with varying amounts of yellow pigments.  We have been learning plenty about curing times, gravity, and running out of materials at inopportune times!
