Pressure formed hemispheres

 

PETG hemispheres...

Newly pressed hemispheres, fresh from the oven. In the foreground you can see some flat squares of

PETG plastic, cut into five-inch squares, still covered in their blue backing paper. The gloves are an essential part of the kit - the wingnuts on the 'press frame' get very hot!

 


 

Finished 4" (101mm) hemispheres

 

Modern art?

No, this isn't my entry for the Turner prize. It's a display of exactly how many hemispheres you need to kit out one Dalek. Don't bother counting, I'll tell you. There are fifty six.

Each one of these PETG plastic bowls has been lovingly sprayed blue on the inside.
