Greetings All !
I'm experimenting with making tentacles that are about 1-2 feet long in length and maybe a little more than an inch maximum width.
Tried making some using semi-stiff nylon tubing and fishing line, but all of the tubing at Lowe's isn't quite stiff enough... and my first two experimental tentacles don't seem to "behave" as they should consistently.
(For those who are curious, I've watched the 2 hour + video tutorial on this sort of thing from the Sam Winstone School of Character Arts.)
So, I thought I'd try using a spring steel strip inside each tentacle (with strong fishing line attached to that instead). And while I found a place online where I can order a roll of spring steel in whatever width I want... I was wondering if anybody has found a source for this in one of the big chains? Lowe's, Home Depot, or Harbor Freight? I'd love to get my hands on some within the next 48 hours.
