Wouldn't it be easier to simply use real gelatinous cubes?





With a bit of trimming you could make them look ok, and it'd be easy to push a skeleton figure or other detritus into it.

And afterwards, assuming it doesn't melt, it'll make a nice dessert.

Obviously, but where's the fun in that?  ;)

...and it makes your dungeon non-vegetarian over prolonged use!  :D

Envirotex Lite is very easy to use. It's an epoxy varnish, meant to give the same coverage effect as fifty coats of regular varnish, but it works fine for water effects too. You mix equal parts of A and B and pour or brush it onto the surface. Use a cheap brush, because you'll have to throw it away afterwards. It dries in about 24 hours. It is a bit expensive, but you don't need a lot to get a good result.

I haven't used it for gelatinous cubes, but it's perfectly possible. Rather than go into a lot of detail here, I'll provide this link to this chap...

Go a quarter way down the page. He shows how to use Envirotex to make a SF stasis tube. Same principle could be used for a gelatinous cube.  ;)

Here's a tutorial link for you to try: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kylemay/2045290249/

I had intended to give it a bash myself before posting up here, but never got round to it. Thought I'd best get it posted up during the threads second incarnation  ;)

I'd thought that maybe you could build it up in stages if you needed to put skeletons in the middle.

Love this thread... full of great ideas. I`m still trying to come up with the ideal Cube, have made a few of my own, but they`re just not right somehow.

.... now the jelly idea sounds yummy. Quite delicious infact.

Did a Foxes Glacier Mint, that someone was sucking, fall out of their mouth mid-game and land on the board?  :D

That's really rather spiffy, Meirion !  8)

Do Fox's glacier mints still exist ?.....Decades ago, they always seemed to advertising those on the TV.

Finally.....Congratulations, Roy !!

It's a 3cm fake ice cube from China/eBay - I'll see if I can post a link later.

Fake ice cube... now that really is cost cutting, non-disposable ice cubes...
