I just used foamcore and paper towels, it was what I had handy when I read this post and wanted to make one right away. 

What is foamcore?

What the deuce?

foamcore or foam board is a type of board that has a layer of foam, similar to styrofoam, covered by two sheets of paper...i'll post my picture later tonight and you'll probably be able to see what i mean...i can't explain very well, sorry! Sad

They sell it at art supply stores and craft stores, too.  They come in various colors:  white with white core, white with black core, black with black and white core with a color on top.

you can go to www.misterart.com, they'll have it for sure!

Okay, and I've been researching various types of packing material too, for the people who can't wait.
these people (and lots of others) sell honeycomb cardboard, which I think would be excellent. Also
these people sell packing tubes. And in triangle shapes! I want to make these for everyone I know. But while instant gratification is nice, I thinks it's so cool to watch the pixelator, knowing the whole thing was free and recycled. It adds to it for me. Also, I like the various sizes of circles you get with different toilet paper tubes, wrapping paper tubes, etc. Sort of organic. Although, among my friends this view isn't shared. Men!

Ok, here are the pictures of my pixelator...I did warn everybody that it was made with things I had available at that moment so please excuse the "unpolished" look of it!
I hope you can sort of see what foam board looks like, tinytallgirl!

Anyway...despite all the flaws of my first attempt I'm still very happy with it!






As you can see, I just set it in front of my computer for the picture.

And thanks miss elizabeth for those links...I think a triangular one would be awesome...whoever tries it first MUST post a picture!!

I can't see your pictures-it's saying it can't find them or access denied or some other silly error.

repost? SmileySmiley

i'm loving the squares, how did you piece the foamcore together? long pieces with short ones glued together, slits to hold them in place? i'm just curious.  i have foam core laying around (for another project that just didn't pan out) and i'm totally interested in trying this . . .

I cut slits to hold them in place!

I'm sure you know how but this is basically the shape i cut and then just interlocked...


I cut four 1.5x9 inch pieces for mine (but it's waaaay too small, as you can see) and then I surrounded those with 4 other pieces, one on each side.  I just held them together with tape but a glue guns work great on foamcore.

I'd love to see your finished pixelator...don't forget to post pics!
