Suno Tubes Stuff that is sold at supply stores.

Made of hard cardboard Used for

columns and rounded walls. Sizes vary but can be big
Upson Board Stuff like suno comes is sheets, can be made to put on a platform, when
wanted to look hard, or be harder.
Shape Can be cut out of shaper blades. Its really expensive at a store, but cheaper to
make at home.
Embossed Moulding Pressed in, not cut and embossed
Most moulding is made out of Styrofoam, unless you need to use it for awhile (BWay)
Acetate Cheap way to simulate a window, or cover rented furniture.
Acryllic Plastic (Plexiglas). Can be pebbled and colored. Used for simulating windows.
Theres a glue that needs to set it to another piece or a machine. The stuff at the hockey
arena windows.
Polyetheline film The stuff garbage bags are made of. Can be shredded to look like
cobwebs. Its great because certain other types of plastics will not stick to it.
Saturated polyesters (Gels). Can be made to look like a mirror.
Unsaturated polyesters (Fiberglass) Simulated jewelry. Its harder, like a rock and is
very heavy. The Original BWay cast of Cats had a fiberglass floor, and had garbage put
in it and it was like a depth of garbage into the ground. Very durable and very slippery.
Its a bitch to get rid of. Most garbage dumps wont take it. Used for some scenery
Polyurethane foam Foam rubber. The stuff in the gymnastics pit. Can be homemade (a
part and b part) liquid and they come together and it looks like a fizzy coke when it
comes out. Used a lot for making props such as breads and sausage. Can be also used as
scenery. More a with b = softer. More b with a = harder. Expensive. If it gets on your
clothes, ladder, etc. Its there.
Polyvinylchloride (PVC). Replaced plumbing at once point, however illegal in some
states, it gets to cold. (ND,MN) Like plumbing. Cheap. Comes in 10 foot planks and can
be 3 feet wide. Must drill a hole and put a screw in to get it to stick
High impact polystyrene White, plastic sheet, sold in different thicknesses Vacuform
machine is like a Xerox machine except for HIP. The machines are about $15,000.
MSUM is the only college that has one. It kinda looks like an oven, with tiny airholes.
High-impact (column looking thing) expanded (that stryofoam stuff)
Polyehtelene foam (brand name ethefoam). Called e-rod. Comes in really small to 2 inch
sizes. (that stuff that covered the pipes on Mr. Kilbers room). Slippy. Wont take paints.
Has to be coated first, and then paintable. Glue, wood sealer, etc.

Polyehtelene plastic. That stuff the put on the bottom part of the wall in the design room.
Its cool. Sold in tubes or sheets.
Some of the glues we use a lot of
Wheat paste- flour based, add water (wallpaper paste). Sticks light things to other
surfaces (paper fabric, not much else) Wallpaper is where not thick things are needed.
Its usually mixed for a lotionesque consistency. Mixed with white glue. Can be made to
look like stucco. Its pretty cheap. When it dries, it dries hard and sharp. Can be used to
make stryofoam harder. Without sawdust, used to glue muslin to flat.
Scenic dope. Same purpose for texturing. More expensive.
Flexible glue Elmers Glue. A non-permanent glue. Wood to wood, fabric to wood.
Need to staple, clamp or w/e. Must be done under pressure overnight.
Glue can also be used as a binder.
Getting paint in it is not an issue.
Clear glue looks like white glue, but isnt.
Clear + Scenic glue = Shinyness
Hot glue = kind lame but kinda good.
#2, 1x4 Pine.
Use #1 unless #2 sucks.
16 feet use 1x4
16+ feet use 1x6.
Side boards are called styles
Top and bottom = rails.
Styles ALWAYS sit on top of rails. A flat surface all the way across the bottom. Toggles
are across the middle. The are attached to the styles. 5 feet + plus need a toggle every 3.54 feet. Sweeps are the things you change the shape of a flat with. A flat here is anything
built like a flat. Gilett says its anything bigger than 2 feet.
Soak a board with wheat paste and then stretch the muslin over it. Staple. Dont pull it too
tight otherwise youll stretch the frame.


Page 53 and 55(55 is next exam) page 58. Page 64.
Page 140 (but know what a chisel is for) same principle for 141 and rasps.
Page 156 and 157, 158 and 159 no welding. 162 and 163. What he told us is what counts.
See other notes. 164. stick to what he said for board widths. Moulding. But know what he
talked about today. No metal stuff. Nothing on tacks. The staples we need to know about
are the air staplers and know the fencing staple. We wont cover washers at all. Adhesives
on 184. We only need to know the ones from today. Page 192 and 193 will be on the next
test. Page 194 are 195 are not on the test. Welding and steelwork will not be in this class.
Test is 100 Answers. Some is multiple choice, short answer. Mostly definitions.
