Hello, this is my second art post.
This time I have experimented on making a sculpture, well more like a decoration. I would greatly appreciate it if you could criticize and give me your thoughts/input.
Thank you

Gorrila glue doesn't expand I believe.
I have used "Great Stuff" it expands.

Actually the Gorilla Glue does expand - I use it all the time. It's expandability is one of the things I love best about it.

I would try slicing into the can, then temporarily tape up the slice lines, then squirting in the insulation foam, just so it fills to the top of the can. Then, take the tape off, and let the foam expand. You'd get giant bulges and the can would look more like it was bursted by the foam then just sliced in to it though.

I thought gorilla glue was just strong glue. How about that...how much does it expand?

I'd say 100% of it's original area, at least. I generally use it in fairly small spaces, use a tiny amount & then have to sand down the overflow (if I'm going for a flat surface, which I almost always am.)

That's a good idea hlvw, but Great Stuff expands really fast and it is hard to stop from overflowing. It will just leak, great idea. I'll have to try it when I buy more canned soda. Thank You

Very cool experiment.  I think that play is the most important part of the art process.  I'd love to see where you take this idea.

ps. I really the first one the most.
