Plastic Canvas

Post by CrabbyChelle628 » Thu Apr 02, 2020 10:29 am

www.consumercrafts.com

has the plastic canvas starting at $0.56 a sheet in all different colors. They also have extra stiff, and and extra flexible, as well as extra large sheets and sheets in different shapes and some cordage to go with them.

I just placed an order and it said shipping may be delayed because of increased demand. It was free shipping after $49. I will let you guys know how fast.

Ok I got my order about a week and a half ago. I started making interactive treat boxes right away and the small crosses work perfectly. I decided to get some of the super soft and some of the ultra stiff as well as the regular. They had many, many, many different colors. They also had different sized and all the colors were the regular size which was size #7 which is 7 squares per inch.

On another note I was wondering if it would be ok to use the metallic colors in my crabitat?

Ive never used plastic canvas, or seen anyone use the metallic colours within their tanks so I'm unable to give an accurate comment. Bit likely, the metallic colourants are infused into the plastic polymer, so it is likely to be safe - and shouldn't leach.

But hopefully someone with some experience on the product can offer further insight.

I agree with JJ’s insight. It’s probably no more or less safe than other colors.
