Toughened windshields - how to create damaged screens..
Posted by mini man on Saturday, December 23, 2017 8:59 AM

Just wondering on this theme,would like to do a smashed screen- like this.

 

NOT A LAMINATED SCREEN.

Will build most anything,love American cars muscle etc.Britishvehicles are a buzz too,trucks are great - want to do a jet truck,building parts up...

Might try freezing a scrap piece. And then crush it flat in a vice or under a clamp between 2 boards

Interesting David,why freeze it though - the clear styrene is brittle as is..

 

Had an idea....using granulated sugar and clear sticky tape to hold the bulk in place?

interesting conundrum. i normally make the whole window 'broken' and just leave salt crystals on the shelf (don't use sugar, it'll attract ants). maybe you could try some really coarse sandpaper (like 40 grit) and make a hatch pattern with it?
