    I am looking for a recipe for bioplastic that I can use to make a sculpture that degrades over time in a public installation.

    yours looks good…need more detail and how stiff can you get it.
    if it can be made like 5 ml think in large sheets, and then cut or molded in the first place.

    can you help me.

    cheers

    Thanks
    I have looked at the video they don’t give any recipes or real information..a list of possible ingredients../which is a start.
    But thanks..if you find anything else I will be very happy.

    also I am considering using the sugar fake glass that prop makers use.

    cheers
